Windermere Services Co. (Seattle, WA) helps kids & families at Children’s Hospital

Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,

Windermere Services Company (Seattle, WA) donated $1,000 over the past month to help families who had a child receiving medical treatment at Children’s Hospital. Social Workers at the hospital have very few resources to turn to when advocating for families in need of financial assistance – not for medical bills, but for things insurance simply doesn’t cover but are necessary for both child (patient) and family.

The most recent request was for a stroller for a little boy with Cerebral Palsy who also received the heartbreaking diagnosis of Leukemia. Due to the fatigue and bone pain caused by his treatments he is no longer able to walk on his own. With the Father being laid off from his job, the cost to purchase a stroller simply wasn’t in the budget.

The Windermere Foundation donated $150 for the purchase of a new stroller for this very deserving little boy. Another family was helped with rent expenses. When requests like these come across my desk, I’m especially thankful to all the donors who help make granting these requests possible.
