Gift of Care


Every day, families in our community find themselves faced with the unimaginable: A tragic burn or catastrophic injury that puts their child’s life at risk; or a rare birth disorder or progressive condition that limits their freedom of movement and independence. In these circumstances, families find themselves searching for every possible answer and any source of hope.

For almost 100 years, Shriners Hospitals for Children — Northern California has been providing more than just answers and hope. The hospital has been providing the true Gift of Care thanks to generous donors whose only motivation is ensuring that children receive the treatment they need

This holiday season we ask you to extend the Gift of Care to a child in your community. Your contribution to the Northern California Shriners Hospital will be used to provide specialty pediatric care to children regardless of a family’s ability to pay. As a donor, you become a source of answers and hope for families facing the unimaginable. We invite you to enjoy the patient stories below, brought to life through expressive dance thanks to Sacramento Contemporary Dance Theatre – another local nonprofit committed to championing important causes and raising awareness in our community.

Instant Noodles: Overlooked Burn Hazard

Featuring Dr. Greenhalgh

Talk of burn prevention at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Northern California invariably turns to soup and instant noodles.

“There continues to be a steady rate of hot soup burns in children,” Sally Martens FPN, a provider with the burn team at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Northern California, said. “We see at least a 2 or 3 new noodle soup burns each week.”


As Families Defer Pediatric Doctor Visits, Scoliosis Diagnoses May Be Missed

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a dramatic reduction in routine preventive health care. With fewer doctor visits, more conditions are going undiagnosed and untreated.

According to a recent American Academy of Pediatrics survey, the pandemic has caused a dramatic reduction in pediatrician visits. Two-thirds of primary care pediatricians have reported practice visits are down.[1]
