Announcing a new Global Tracheostomy Collaborative GoFundMeCharity page and campaign: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/improving-and-saving-lives-of-tracheostomy-patients

We have a goal of raising $100,000 in order to meet future opportunities of expanding GTC membership to hospitals who would otherwise not be able to afford a quality improvement initiative in tracheostomy care.

In order to meet our goal, we will need all of you to go to the link and share with your social media accounts and send it out to your email distribution lists. Please mention that any donation amount is appreciated.

There are special GTC gifts made by Patient & Family Committee member Melissa Webb that will be sent to the top donors.

Patient’s Mother Attests to Improved Tracheostomy Care at Boston Children’s Hospital, a GTC member hospital

As the mother of a child with a long-term tracheostomy, I know how difficult and challenging tracheostomy care can be. I also know firsthand how care for our loved one with a trach, or yourself as an individual living with a tracheostomy, is all too often fragmented and disorganized, and how hard that is for patients and families.

At Boston Children's Hospital, where my son receives his care and where I serve as a Patient Partner on the hospital Trach Team, I have witnessed the transformation and quality improvements made in tracheostomy care and services since becoming a GTC Member Hospital. This is why I am writing you, to ask that you consider supporting the GTC through a donation. With truly integrated care, as promoted by the Global Tracheostomy Collaborative (GTC), tracheostomy care can be improved, quality of life improved and lives can be saved.

Please consider donating to the GTC today and spread the word among your family and friends.
