Founded in 1987 by singer/songwriter Paul Simon and pediatrician/advocate Irwin Redlener, MD, Children’s Health Fund is a national leader on healthcare for vulnerable children. Children’s Health Fund has a fleet of 50 mobile medical clinics serving hundreds of locations across the country, including schools, community shelters and homeless shelters so that every child in need has a chance to be healthy and ready to learn. Over 27 years, the organization has provided more than three million healthcare visits to disadvantaged children, often in places where doctors and healthcare providers are in short supply.

Having a kid with autism, I value my heath care insurance. I don’t know what those early years would have been like without them. And when he gets sick, I either take him to his pediatrician and/or run to the store and buy a bottle of Tylenol. These are the things that many parents take for granted.
Not everyone has access to medical insurance, not everyone has the means to run to the drug store and buy a bottle of Tylenol. It’s wonderful to know that the Children’s Health Fund makes it possible for patients to be treated and provided the care they need.
