This Valentine’s Day, you can be a hero. Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago has put together an amazing campaign for kids that are at the hospital on Valentine’s Day. The campaign is inspired by a little girl who had leukemia.
Four years ago, a little girl names Taylor changed Valentine’s Day forever. Weak from Leukemia, she asked her grandmother a heart breaking question:
“Is there anything worse than leukemia?”
Her grandmother reached over and squeezed Taylor’s hand. “How about not feeling loved?”
Taylor wanted to do something special for all the kids who’d be spending Valentine’s Day at Children’s—to give them something to show them that they are loved. Tragically, Taylor lost her battle but her legacy lives on.
Help continue what Taylor started. Send your Valentine today, along with a donation to help kids fighting for their lives. Click here to send a Valentine’s Day card to a child and bring a smile to their face.
Watch them smile on this video. It is incredible what a small gesture can do. Children belong on the playground and it is heartbreaking to see them fight for their lives at a hospital.
Children’s Memorial Hospital is a wonderful organization that puts kids first. They believe that Heroes are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Heroes see a need and take action. Heroes put others first. Heroes want to make change for the better.
At Children’s Memorial Hospital, heroes come in all shapes and sizes!
- Patients and families facing illness and injury
- Doctors, nurses and other staff who save lives and deliver compassionate care
- Scientists who create hope by revealing the mysteries of disease
- Volunteers who generously share their time and talents with the hospital

Be a hero and send a Valentine’s Card.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
