Meet Our All-Stars
This is Bruce, he is one of our Caring Fore Kids All-Stars. Our All-Stars are an inspiring group of young patients who have received ongoing care at Grand Itasca, primarily in our pediatric rehab area. Most of them have complex medical histories that require complicated care coordination involving many specialists.
Our annual Caring Fore Kids event raises funds that directly impact the All-Stars by allowing us to purchase medical equipment and supplies that they rely on.
