Thank you to CHOP for sponsoring today’s post and helping to keep my child healthy!
It seems that no matter where I travel too, people know my home area for the Liberty Bell and great pediatric care. CHOP, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is well known for providing quality care for every scenario, whether your child is hurt or injured.
A few years ago, my oldest daughter gave us a terrible scare. On the first day of summer, she started to complain about stomach pains. After a few agonizing hours, we learned she need to have her appendix out. We thought that would be the scariest thing we would be forced to face. What came a few days after she was released was far worse.
The surgeon called to tell me that there was a malignant mass on my daughter’s appendix. Those words just about shattered my world. We were lucky. The oncologists told us that my daughter could be officially declared cured, something that they do not say lightly, because of the size of the tumor and where it was. They removed all of it when they removed her appendix. We were so lucky to have a great care team that could help us from the start of pain to the day they could say my daughter was completely healthy.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia provides state-of- the art, high-quality, and safe care to children and young adults. Many people think that CHOP is only for the sickest kids because of the cutting-edge treatments. While many people do come to CHOP when they feel like they are out of options to help their children, CHOP is perfect for kids who are dealing asthma and allergies, bump their head, or have a broken bone. CHOP even offers regular well check up for kids. Why consider CHOP? You want the very best care for your kids whether they need a check up or have an injury. Starting at CHOP from check ups means that your kids are in the best hands right from the start. This helps the doctors find any issues right from the start or help kids through any injury or sickness they may develop.
