Light the Way to a brighter holiday for the kids

While our patients are used to hearing “No” because their healing requires it, in this pandemic year, they began to hear it a little bit more.

But the spirit of Light the Way is to Tell Them Yes. Thank you for your support during Rady Children’s Light the Way 2020 - for helping us tell all our children, “Yes, we are here for you.”
