Patient Stories

Emma is safe and sound thanks to expert care by our CHET and CVICU teams. Read her incredible story.

Our young patients inspire us each and every day. When faced with a chronic illness, they show courage. When battling a life-threatening disease, they call upon their strength. When there are setbacks, they show resilience. And through it all — and despite the many challenges — they never give up hope.

Here, we are proud to share stories of these amazing kids and their life-changing care at Rady Children’s.

The stories through 2015 were originally published in The San Diego Union-Tribune Kids’ NewsDay, a special edition of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
