12 Days of Giving
Nov 26 – Dec 7 all-day

If the walls of OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois could talk, what would they say? They would tell stories of four-year old heroes and cancerous villains. They would start a slow clap for every staff member that, day after day, gives everything they have to make a difference. And above all else, they would spread the message that when we all come together, the impossible is possible.
