A healthier tomorrow starts today.

And it starts with you.

At Lurie Children’s, we believe the steps we take today can help us create the future we want tomorrow. But getting there takes the support of our community and the generosity of donors like you.

The O’Donnell family experienced that generosity in 2020 when Allison and her husband Danny found out that their unborn son, Liam, had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), a condition that causes organs to shift, compressing the lungs and impacting a baby’s growth in the womb.

See how the team at the Chicago Institute for Fetal Health at Lurie Children’s delivered the specialized care Allison and Liam needed.
