We live in an incredible community, in which families going through tough times are never alone and people come together to help support the care of children they’ve never met. Helping those in need comes as second nature for Golisano Children’s Hospital and the wonderfully compassionate families in the Finger Lakes region.
We invite you to read the heartfelt story of two families from Corning, whose paths happened to cross at just the right time, as just one great example of the beautiful relationships that can emerge, unexpectedly, during trying times. Here’s the Democrat and Chronicle story, by Mare Hare, about 5-year-old Zach Spaulding and 3-year-old Loretta Getola — two little ones with brain tumors, who have come to be like siblings over the course of their many trips to Golisano Children’s Hospital.
Support for our community’s families is alive and well outside these walls, but it is also very much a part of the culture within Golisano Children’s Hospital. We invite you to explore our pages to read more about our Child Life Program, our Pediatric Social Work Division, our Music Therapy Program, our focus on family-centered care and our Supportive Care Team.
