Resilient and fun-loving, Kingston battles spinal muscular atrophy, a rare genetic disease which causes progressive weakness of muscles involved in crawling, walking, swallowing and breathing.
The path has not been easy. Kingston has been hospitalized about 100 times in his short life. But with the help of a breakthrough medicine and physical therapy, Kingston has made extraordinary progress. The medicine helps replace the spinal motor neurons which help his muscle contractions. Physical therapy helps him learn how to use the strength he’s gained to improve his motor functions.

One hundred percent of your donation to HDVCH through our CMN partnerships stays local and supports the Annual Fund, sustaining over 20 programs that rely on philanthropic funding. These programs include the Center for Child Protection, NICU Family Support, and Child and Family life and would not be available for our patients and their families without your support. Here are a few examples of what your donations to the Annual Fund help support:
$10 - Meal Voucher: Allows parents to get a meal/snack during their child’s stay. While the child’s food cost is covered by insurance, the parents are not.
$15 - NICU Graduation: Celebratory book, toy or blanket and gift box to celebrate babies who are graduating (leaving) the NICU.
$25 - Nerf Guns: Used for fun play and distraction for patients and families during long hospital stays.
$60 - Universal Cell Phone Chargers: Provided to families who need them while in the hospital. When you forget your charger, the last thing you want to worry about is trying to find a way to charge your device.
