Girl with Valentine

Thank you for sending a valentine to a child at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago! We are in awe of the love that was shared during the Handfuls of Love program. Because of friends like you, we collected 25,502 valentines to shower our patients and families with your messages! Your cards brought smiles to their faces, and they knew they weren’t forgotten.

We had enough valentines to deliver several cards to each patient as well as their brothers and sisters. We even delivered your cards and messages to our outpatient clinics and satellite hospital locations. Through your kindness, the walls of the hospital’s Family Life Center were decorated, brightening up the day for all who visited!

See how these valentines made our patients’ day here.

Thank you for sending handfuls of love to the children of Lurie Children’s. You really made our patients’ Valentine’s Day special!
