"As an undergraduate at Fresno State I was a part of the Little Hero program at Valley Children’s. My “Little Hero” was a thirteen year old girl who was hit by a drunk driver. The accident left her paralyzed from the waist down with minimal use of her arms and one of her brothers was killed. In her condition she was always smiling and helped all those around her. I cannot recall one negative comment in four years. She was always so excited to spend time with me and each time I realized that she gave me more than I could ever give to her. She was my hero and pushes me to be a better person to this day." - Danielle

La Visionaria Guild

"When I was four years old I began having seizures and my parents took me to Valley Children’s.  I was in the hospital for one week and numerous tests were run before I was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder.  I continued to receive great care, seeing a neurologist at Valley Children’s until I was eighteen years old.  I am part of La Visionaria in order to give back to the hospital that gave me so much." – Kristin
