Thank you to the thousands of Central New Yorkers who made gifts to Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital in 2014.  Your generosity funded:  assistance to families, distraction activities and education opportunities for our young patients, the family resource center, pediatric emergency room amenities, important research, and many other special programs and services that would not be available without your generosity.  Every day, your gift provides some form of comfort and care to a child and their family, helping to make a difficult time more manageable.
