Donate to Comer Children's Hospital

Through research at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, we are discovering new treatments and better ways to tackle aggressive cancers like neuroblastoma, the most common cancer in infants. We are also confronting devastating chronic conditions like epilepsy head on, and bringing much-needed care to our communities. When you support our researchers, you support the advanced care and scientific breakthroughs that push the boundaries of medical discovery. 

Changing the Future for Our Smallest Patients

We conduct leading-edge research and offer advanced care for a wide range of specialties, including cancer, diabetes and endocrinology, and neurology and neurosurgery.

  • Cancer: Features nationally known oncology experts who continue to challenge the limitations of innovation to provide the latest therapies, including treatments developed here at the University of Chicago Medicine.
  • Diabetes and Endocrinology: Includes pediatric diabetes specialists who help young people manage their diabetes and provide families with education and support. Our team is experienced in delivering complex care for diabetes and other endocrine disorders, offering novel treatments not widely available.
  • Neurology and Neurosurgery: Demonstrates excellent collaboration as pediatric neurosurgeons work closely with pediatric neurologists to provide the most up-to-date and effective treatment for the entire spectrum of neurological disease.

Comer Children's is also at the forefront of care and research into other specialties, including inflammatory bowel disease, neonatology and food allergies.

Join Us in Making a Difference

With your help, we can  transform breakthrough research into life-saving treatments. We welcome your support, and offer numerous ways you can make a huge difference for our patients.

  • Gifting to a Pediatrics Center of Excellence will lead to the recruitment of top specialists in a variety of areas including hematology/oncology, neurology, gastroenterology, cardiology and diabetes.
  • Supporting our Thirty Million Words Project will help us improve the quantity and quality of parent-to-child speech, enabling us to position a child for success later in life. 
  • Donating to the Comer Children's Pediatric Mobile Medical Unit will enable us to provide treatment and health education services to children and adolescents who might not otherwise receive care. Funding is needed to support chronic illness management, a teen clinic for high school students, and mental health evaluation and counseling.
  • Contributing to Comer Children's Child Life and Family Education Program allows you to offer comfort to young patients undergoing surgery, procedures or critical care. This program provides educational, developmental and therapeutic services for children through programs such as:
  • Music Therapy—visiting musicians and music therapists spend time playing age-appropriate music for children to create a healing environment
  • Literacy Program—books are available for reading quietly in bed or patients can listen to a story in waiting areas to provide a welcome escape from pain
  • Shadow Buddies—specially created dolls are provided that give children a way to identify and relate to their situation

From expert care for premature babies to routine checkups, we provide children a healthy, dynamic future. With you on board, we’re bound to succeed.
