Nearly five years ago, Boston was changed forever when a beautiful Marathon Monday turned into a senseless tragedy. Gillian Reny, then a high school senior, was one of the 39 critically injured patients rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), where doctors and nurses saved her life and both of her legs. In gratitude to BWH, the Reny family established The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation with a mission of transforming outcomes for civilian and military heroes worldwide who have suffered devastating traumatic injuries.
To date, the center has raised more than $12 million dollars. But much more needs to be done. Although trauma accounts for 41 million emergency department visits a year, funding for trauma research and care remains scarce.
As an employee who works closely with the BWH Orthopaedics and Trauma Departments day in and day out, I see firsthand the wonderful work that the hospital is doing in these areas. Please support me by donating whatever amount you can. Thank you in advance for all of your love and support!
