Proceeds from this year’s gala will support Blythedale’s innovative Parent and Family Education Program. From infants with complex lung, heart or neurological conditions to the child who has suffered a devastating accident or medical crisis, providing extensive support and training to the child’s parents and caregivers prior to discharge is essential, particularly given the persistent shortage of home care nurses trained in caring for medically complex children. Parents learn everything from how to bathe a baby with breathing and feeding tubes attached to their body to how to manage a portable ventilator and oxygen. No family ever thinks they will be in the position of caring for a child with complex medical needs, but our specially trained nurse educators and therapists divide what initially seems like an overwhelming learning curve into tiny manageable steps. 

In 2022 A Celebration of Blythedale raised nearly $1.4 million! To watch a recap of last year's gala, click here
