Give to CMH


As we come to the end of the year, we reflect, with gratitude, on the amazing generosity of friends and donors to Children's Mercy. You bring peace and tranquility to families touched by the special care they receive and make possible life-changing transformations for children seen at Children's Mercy. Your kindness allows us to go above and beyond our commitment to offer the best care to children throughout the community and region.

From the comfort of a snuggly bear to the peace of mind of a properly installed car seat, you can provide a sense of security for every moment of a family's visit. This Wish List represents our greatest wish - to improve the health and well-being of children and transform lives. Care at Children's Mercy requires many, many, special items and we hope you'll fulfill one (or more!) of these ongoing or one-time hospital needs. Each item presented here ensures all children will receive the highest level of clinical and family-centered care.

Every gift is meaningful - every item on this list is significant.

During this season, and the whole year through, we are thankful for you. Without your thoughtfulness, we could not transform lives. THANK YOU.

Children may need wheelchairs for a number of reasons: an injury to the legs or spine; disabilities due to muscular dystrophy; or cerebral palsy. Whatever the reason, many children and families rely on wheelchairs to get around when they are at Children's Mercy, leading to shortages and wear and tear.
