For one afternoon every month Jillian Duffy, Miss Connecticut 2019, visits Connecticut Children’s and makes her way room-to-room meeting with patients.

Charlotte Wesoloskie is a sweet, soft-spoken girl with a big heart and an even bigger message for children diagnosed with cancer: “Don’t be scared and never give up!” As a cancer survivor, 11-year-old Charlotte speaks from experience and truly “walks the walk.” And, as the inspiration behind a growing fundraising phenomenon known as PJ Day […]
Gavin David is an ebullient child, always happy, always running, says his mother, Lindsay. “He’s a ball of sunshine,” she says. So Lindsay wasn’t particularly alarmed when Gavin woke up with a bloody nose one morning in March 2017. His mother figured it was just winter in New England and let it go. But the […]
When Genevieve Neiman was 10 years old, her parents had no idea that a routine doctor’s visit would lead to a cancer diagnosis. Or that she would begin her summer vacation the very next day as an inpatient at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. The family was packing for a trip to Florida when they received […]
