    As a routine measure for preemies, Saylor was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit, but just one hour later she had a breathing tube in place and was being prepped for transport to a nearby pediatric hospital. Saylor had been born with a heart defect, tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, which was depriving her tiny body of sufficient oxygen. Despite their fear and confusion, Saylor’s parents took time to thoroughly research various children’s hospitals. After speaking with renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Vaughn Starnes, MD, at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, they decided to entrust him with their daughter’s care. . . From the moment Saylor and her parents stepped out of the emergency transport helicopter at CHLA, they felt comfortable and supported. “Saylor was just 5 days old,” says Megan, “and we didn’t know anything about the heart world. I remember that first night; the two nurses just gave us a hug and said, ‘Ask any questions you want.’ They were wonderful.” . .

    Chances are a child on your very own street came to us for care this year. But families also came to us from all 50 states and as many as 25 countries for the high-quality care that is available to every child right in our own backyard. This holiday season, help us make sure every child who needs our care receives it. Donate to CHLA today [link in profile]. . . #LiveLAGiveLA @drewbarrymore

    Santa has been busy! Luckily he's had plenty of helpers this holiday season. We'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has shown their support for the kids at CHLA. All of those smiling faces are because of your generosity. Happy Holidays to all of you. #santaclaus #christmas #xmas

    Not quite reindeer, but the LAPD's four legged friends easily navigated Santa, his elves and the LAPD's Mounted Platoon to CHLA in time for the holidays. #lapdmountedplatoon #xmas #santa #LAPD

    Kylie Branch’s favorite color is pink. Pink like the “Princess Warrior” T-shirt she wears to her physical therapy session, or as she calls it, “playtime.” . . Kylie is smiling and full of energy as she clambers up and down stairs and ramps, a slight imbalance the only sign that she is anything but a typical, healthy 3-year-old. But just a year and a half ago, she was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), an uncommon and aggressive form of leukemia that accounts for about 15 percent of cases of the disease. . .
