When Belief, Trust and Pixie Dust Are Not Enough

Ching Lau, MD, PhD, Division Head for the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Bid for Kids project will support one of the four primary areas of our mission: research.

Many people don’t think “research” when they think of Connecticut Children’s. After all, the Medical Center is where you bring sick kids to be diagnosed and treated. Our clinical staff do whatever it takes to help make these children the healthiest in the country.

And that’s exactly why Connecticut Children’s is dedicated to research.

Your support—and a little pixie dust—will improve lives and make tomorrow brighter for children everywhere.
