Every year, Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen touches the lives of hundreds of children and their families. Every one of these children has an incredible story... here are just a few of them.

Kathryn Winn
Ten-year-old Kathryn Winn likes bowling, Harry Potter, chicken wings and the Boston Red Sox. She also likes the team of providers at Vermont Children's Hospital who helped her beat the cancer she was diagnosed with at the age of seven.

Kelly and Maureen Eddy
Sisters Maureen and Kelly Eddy share much: a love for reading, a talent for laughing, and a passion for living. They also share the same medical problem – cystic fibrosis.

Abby Goodrich
Abby became a patient at Vermont Children's Hospital even before she was born. Her spirit, strength and determination have helped her battle a rare genetic kidney disease, autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. Abby is a true champion in every sense of the word.
