From Lucile Packard's dream to our state-of-the-art new hospital and expanding network, Stanford Children's Health has a rich history of medical innovation for children. Recently @Forbes featured our story starting from the very beginning at the Stanford Home for Convalescent Children (circa 1930). Tap the link in our profile to read about the evolution of our pediatric care. #ThrowbackThursday
"Heroes are real. The doctors, surgeons and nurses who saved my life are heroes," says Lucca, one of our @summerscamper Patient Heroes. 
Rushed by ambulance to Packard Children's a year ago, Lucca quickly underwent two surgeries. Today he's raising awareness for cancer research in support of the Bass Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases. Tap the link in our bio for the full story:
Please leave warm birthday wishes for Celeste and Alexia. 🎉 The 7-year-old Patient Heroes who scampered for Neonatology Research in June, celebrated their big day over the weekend with a towering donut cake. Swipe to see the artwork that Lucca, your Patient Hero for Cancer Research, created for them as a special gift. #donutgrowup via @summerscamper
These photos from Animal Day are giving us all the Friday feels. As part of this month’s Spirit Day, nurses at Packard Children’s dressed up as everything from jellyfish to unicorns. Some even decked out their entire unit—we’re looking at you Maternity! 🦄 Stay tuned for next month’s Spirit Day when nurses will dress up as their favorite holiday…

"This wish is going to make my day! I get to play with my guitar and Legos. And I'll learn how to play Fight Song." - Avalynn, age 6, after her surprise visit from Little Wishes, a volunteer-run organization that brings thoughtful gifts to children battling serious illnesses during their hospitalization. ---
Seeing Avalynn's eyes light up just made our day! Our nurse Sarah (left) was a @littlewishesorg recipient when she was 11-years-old, and now she's bringing joy to more patients in our care. Thank you to Laura (center) and the entire Little Wishes team for your incredible support of our patients and their families.
Let's cheer on baby Lola! 😍 Earlier this year we brought you her story as the smallest infant in North America to receive bloodless open-heart surgery. Today the 8-month-old is learning to crawl, eating her first solid foods, and giggling at her reflection in the mirror. Read the full story on our blog. Temporary link in bio.
High fives all around. ✋️ It's never too early to begin practicing life-saving #CPR skills, and kids got in on the action at the Family Festival during Summer Scamper. The #Revive team, Initiative for Resuscitation Excellence, was on-site with first responders to offer training to community members and healthcare providers. #Revive #Scamper2018
U.S. News and World Report has once again ranked Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford among the nation’s #BestHospitals for children. 🎉

Congratulations to nurse and DAISY Award honoree Natasha Rajkumar.
