Nationally ranked care. Another way our love for kids just keeps on growing.


Rachael Brady stands with David Ish,Child Life Specialist,before leaving birthday gifts for Cardinal Glennon patients.

Rachael Brady has a big heart. On August 12, the day before her 10th birthday, she delivered her own birthday gifts to patients on the fourth floor at Cardinal Glennon.

Rachael, a 4th grader at Wohlwend Elementary School in Oakville, decided that she wanted to extend her birthday celebration by giving birthday gifts she received to patients instead of keeping them for herself. 

As a patient at Cardinal Glennon two years ago, Rachael feels a special connection to the hospital, along with her family.  “I wanted to share with other kids,” Rachael said.

Kim Brady, Rachael’s mom, said her family hopes to come back around Christmas time to deliver more gifts to Cardinal Glennon patients.

A true act of kindness - thank you Rachael for your generosity!
