SOS KIDS FOUNDATION - SAVE OUR SICK KIDS FOUNDATION
For more than a quarter century we have assisted individual physicians, parents and children with the care of life-threatening infections in immunocompromised pediatric and adult patients. This outreach has been conducted over this course of time in 179 centers throughout the United States and in 60 centers in 33 countries throughout the world. Our outreach efforts have resulted in the survival of children and adult patients overcoming overwhelming infections that otherwise would have been highly lethal. The success of these efforts arises especially from our translational research, which identifies cutting edge therapeutic approaches and technologies that lead to lifesaving interventions as seen in the patients who have benefited from their application. The stories of some of these patients are reflected in MissionFromTheHeart.org where grateful families have written compelling and poignant stories of our interventions that have made all the difference in the lives of the children and adults afflicted with these terrible infections. soskidsfoundation.org
Several of these families have since come together and developed a foundation to support this effort known as the Save Our Sick Kids Foundation (SOS Kids Foundation). The mission of this foundation is to provide the support for the infrastructure, the training and the ongoing research to support this effort for saving the lives of children and adults afflicted with these life-threatening infections.
