2019 Signature Project

 

In addition to funding uncompensated care for the many children and their families at Cook Children's, Jewel Charity also assists in the funding of Signature Projects within the Medical Center. This year we are focusing on The Comprehensive Stroke and Thrombosis Program at Cook Children’s Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center.

The Comprehensive Stroke and Thrombosis Program at Cook Children’s Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center

People rarely think of children as being at risk for stroke. But the truth is, strokes can happen to people of all ages, even to babies in the womb. 

Treating stroke in children requires specialized training since the causes and symptoms are so different from adult stroke.  Cook Children's has developed the Stroke and Thrombosis Program, comprised of a team of specialists whose primary goal is to help children recover from a stroke and/or thrombotic disease, and to prevent future strokes. 

Your generous support, provides access to care for all children and ensures that the medical needs of pediatric stroke patients will continue to be met.
