Foundation grant leaves former Child Center patient jumping for joy after treatment

It’s always gratifying to hear from former patients and families about the impact of their care at Rogers. But when that feedback comes from a child who is as grateful as this one, it’s particularly meaningful. This child’s family received a grant from the Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation to pay for several weeks of her treatment.

She writes, “When I came to Rogers, I couldn’t sit down, couldn’t wear a coat, couldn’t sleep with a blanket, couldn’t shower or do self care, couldn’t stop following my mom around all day long, and much more. You have changed my life for the better, and I don’t know how to praise you enough.”

The words and images are found in a handwritten letter to the team at the Child Center, which treats patients ages 8 to 13. The former patient went on to say, “Your organization has helped many people overcome the “impossible: but guess what? You have just made the impossible change to “possible” in this little heart of mine therefore changing my world. I used to not be able to smile because of my OCD, but now I’m able to jump for joy with glee that I’ve been cured and helped, so now I can finally move on to more exciting possibilities in life!”
