An Open Letter from Celeste Keller 
Jayden DeLuca Foundation has been a prominent supporter St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.

The Foundation is dedicated to helping children fight cardiac diseases and to offering support and encouragement to those affected by pediatric heart conditions.  Over the last ten years, they have helped raise awareness and share their story around the region to help raise funds for pediatric cardiac research and St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital.

St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital has benefited from the Jayden DeLuca Foundation through their help to revitalize the Pediatric Resource Room on the fourth floor of the Children’s Hospital. The room is a wonderful place where families can get a quick recharge, catch their breath and have a get-away close to their child.

The resource room was just the start of their vision, and now with the groundbreaking of the new St. Luke’s Children’s Pavilion, the Jayden DeLuca Foundation will help bring a Family Resource Center to life in the new outpatient Pavilion. The Pavilion, scheduled to open in early 2019, will have more space, more specialists and more services all under one roof and will increase efficiency and effectiveness, resulting in few appointments, shorter visits, less travel time and happier parents. Under the watchful eye of Jeremy and Karalie, the Family Resource Center will be a nurturing and comfortable environment for families in need of support, education, and much needed respite during long days in the clinic.  Together we are building better care into every detail of the Pavilion, because when it’s your child, every detail matters.  
Through their hard work and dedication, Jeremy and Karalie have helped many children and families and shown us that a little girl like Jayden can make a big difference. We are sincerely grateful for their leadership and commitment. Our hospital and our community are better because of the Jayden DeLuca Foundation.

“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.”

“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.”
