"My mother in law was an usher at the Helen Hayes theatre waaay back when and worshipped Helen Hayes. When we showed her the plaque she was overcome with so much emotion. It was truly an honor for name to be on the Wall of Hope."
"You good people [at the Helen Hayes Hospital] got my wife to walk again in a very short time. I took my wife out of a rehab after five weeks not walking [and brought her] to you angels and in three days she was walking. You are the best and I tell everyone so."
"My father was impressed and appreciative of the care he received at the Helen Hayes Hospital over the summer. My family and I have long admired the work done there."
“To all the Caregivers and Administrative Support Staff, I continue to appreciate the outstanding care given to me during my stay at Helen Hayes Hospital in 2016.”
It's no secret; this is a difficult time for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we all live our lives, and it is so easy to give in to the exhaustion.
However, at the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation, we remain hopeful. Thanks to people like you who support our mission, our hope is to provide financial assistance to Helen Hayes Hospital, its staff, and patients so that they can continue to make miracles like Steven's happen every day.
During this Season of Giving, The Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation would like to share Steven's story. We want you to feel the same inspiration that we do, every day.
A few weeks from college graduation, Steven nearly lost everything when a drunk driver's vehicle struck him while walking in Daytona Beach, Florida. His head went through the car's windshield, and his broken body was tossed 70 feet. Steven was left with a life-threatening brain injury, crushed lower legs, several other fractures, open flesh wounds, and significant blood loss. He was in a coma for almost two weeks. Not expecting Steven to survive, the doctors asked his parents' consent to donate his organs.
After five months in Helen Hayes Hospital, 15 major surgeries, countless prayers from family and friends, and a two-year struggle to walk again, Steven made a full recovery from his physical and brain injuries. He graduated from college with high honors, went to law school, passed the bar exam on the first try, and became a trial attorney representing injured accident victims.
Steven's recovery, like countless others, wouldn't be possible without your support. During this Season of Giving, can you help the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation continue its mission by donating today?
