The Family Resource Room

On February 27, 2013, The Jayden DeLuca Foundation officially opened The JDF Family Resource Room in St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. This place was created as a place for families to go when in the hospital to get a few minutes away, meet with doctors, research news they have just learned, contact family members with medical updates and more.

This is one of our projects that we are most proud of because it directly affects and helps families with children in the hospital. It was designed and decorated with those families in mind.

We are currently working with St. Luke’s to provide an additional JDF Resource Room in the newly planned expansion.

“Fifty years ago we would have known her heart was the problem but have not been able to repair it. Fifteen years ago the heart/lung bypass machine was not advanced enough and would have destroyed her kidneys during her surgery. It is only today, with all our medical advancements, that my baby could be ok. The words thankful do not even begin to describe how we feel.”

“I wanted to thank you again for your gift. The money has already gone to good use. There was a patient from Idaho with PH that needed oxygen on the airplane and we could not get it funded, so we used Jayden’s fund to pay for it so the family could go home sooner. We have recently sent in 4 different pulmonary hypertension papers to medical journals on different aspects of PH in children.”
