“The Spaulding experience is not just about the physical spaces or the programs; it’s about the people and how they bring it all together. It’s about how they give you hope. It takes a lot of support and resources to keep this important work going. We do whatever we can for Spaulding — because it matters.”
Terri Yahia and Willis Wang, parents of Ethan, a Spaulding patient
