For Tomorrow's Breakthroughs campaign celebrates 1-year

The landscape of pediatric healthcare is changing and it is your dedication, day in and day out, that consistently pushes CHOP forward. As a member of the employee family here, you are at the center of every breakthrough – thank you.

This month, we’re celebrating the 1-year anniversary of the For Tomorrow’s Breakthroughs campaign public launch. Thousands of donors – CHOP staff included – have come together to support the campaign and gifts of every amount are making a difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve. Philanthropic support bridges the gap between resources and the breakthroughs that happen here. It’s that simple.

N/IICU Angel Eye Project

Nurse with child in N/IICU One specific example of the power of giving to the For Tomorrow’s Breakthroughs campaign is the launch of the N/IICU Angel Eye project.

Having a baby in the N/IICU is heart wrenching enough, without the added reality that some families are not able to be at their child’s bedside for a variety of reasons – some due to financial and professional obligations, geographic distance, or even their own health concerns. Thanks to generous campaign contributions, we were able to purchase new N/IICU Angel Eye cameras that are made all the difference for these families.

These cameras are placed at the top of every crib in N/IICU and film the newborn 24/7. Parents and other family members can log into a secure account from any laptop, tablet or smart phone and the camera feed allows them to feel connected to the baby even when they can’t physically be there.

Help sustain breakthrough work

In addition to the N/IICU Angel Eye project, gifts to the For Tomorrow’s Breakthroughs campaign have made tremendous progress in other areas of the Hospital a reality. And even with all of our progress, there is still so much to be done. With the end of the campaign drawing closer every day, philanthropy is now more important than ever in order for us to sustain our breakthrough work.

You can participate in the campaign by making a gift to one of the campaign pillars or by giving to any area that touches your heart. Please give today.
