"This was from Lily's surgery last year. The wagons at Children's have been a lifesaver for us. Many times only one parent can take the twins to their appointment and without these wagons it would be almost impossible to accomplish. During hospital stays they allow us to take walks with our children and get them out of bed and out of the rooms. That is so important for a child who spends weeks on end staying at Children's of Alabama."

​- Sarah & Jeremie Alberts, Parents to Lily and James​

There are several ways to donate:

"Grayson loved them because they let him kind of forget what was going on for a few minutes. He got to experience a little bit of normalcy being able to get out of the room and circle the hospital over and over again. The wagons also help with unloading the car. When you have a sick child you try and bring as much as you can that will make them feel at home even though he's not. With a wagon one trip to the car and you're done."

"We have used the wagons since my brother was a baby and then again when Natalie started having to go for her tummy. It helped with our stuff while have three little ones as well. They made it so much easier on us getting in and out of the hospital. Plus it's fun for the kids."
- Anna Bevel, Mother to Natalie

Each day children are admitted, have tests, procedures and surgeries or are in need of emergency medicine. The wagons at Children’s allow the smallest patients and their families to move freely around the hospital for these things without the scariness of a wheelchair. For a child who does not feel well the smallest things can make a huge difference.
