Seven-year-old Hayes was born without a right leg. But nothing stops him from getting around. "I'm fast," he says.
Hayes is fast! He's also smart and funny. He has a loving family — and an amazing team of doctors, nurses, therapists, and prosthetists at Shriners Hospitals for Children® making sure he gets the care he needs.
That includes Jillian, Hayes's prosthetist and friend. She has a prosthetic leg, too! She knows how to comfort kids, fit them for prostheses, and guide them based on her own experiences. And she knows how to create prosthetic devices that help kids run, play, learn and grow.
When Hayes was born missing his leg, his parents didn't know what to do. Thank goodness someone told them about Shriners Hospitals for Children. For seven years now, he's been treated by our incredible team, with Jillian right by his side whenever Hayes needs her. "I love being able to be a role model for my pediatric patients so they know they can overcome any obstacle in their way."
It takes a lot of love to care for great kids like Hayes who face challenges like orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate. It takes our team of doctors, nurses, pediatric specialists, and staff — we call them hospital heroes. And it takes caring friends like you providing your support.
To Love and Beyond! That's the Shriners Hospitals for Children way. And this National Hospital Week, we're honoring heroes like Jillian by sharing their stories and thanking people like you for the love you send and the gifts you give.
We couldn't do this important work without you!

Mary is the director of the Shriners Hospitals for Children® — Chicago cleft and craniofacial program, a speech-language pathologist, and a Fellow with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. And she's known National Patient Ambassador Connor nearly all of his life. "I remember holding him in my arms and thinking what a beautiful baby boy he was."
Connor was definitely a beautiful baby. (Today, he's a handsome 14-year-old.) But everyone could tell he was going to need specialized care to heal his cleft lip and palate.
It was Mary who walked Connor's family through the plan, step by step, and taught Connor's mom how to feed him with a cleft. Connor was going to need two major surgeries in his first two years of life. There would be follow-up treatments and additional surgeries to help him speak clearly and to address other issues including his hearing.
But Connor was in good hands. He had Mary and a team of amazing doctors and specialists looking out for him. He had his family's love. And he had caring people like you supporting Shriners Hospitals for Children so generously.
Connor has been a patient with us for 14 years. Thank goodness Mary has been with him every step of the way and is still part of his life, as a speech-language pathologist and a caring family friend.
There's a sense of confidence that comes from being loved. At Shriners Hospitals for Children, we're dedicated — To Love and Beyond. Supported by caring people like you, we change lives every day for children with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate.
This year, in honor of National Hospital Week, we're celebrating heroes like Mary by sharing their stories and thanking people like you for the love you send and the gifts you give.
