Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for families, sick children and infants throughout our communities by providing support when and how they need it most.

Organization History

In 2008, Rocky Mountain Children's Health Foundation (RMCHF) was established to provide direct support to pediatric patients and their families in the Rocky Mountain region. Throughout the year, RMCHF provides direct assistance to more than 5,000 pediatric patients and their families in need. Thousands of babies in neonatal intensive care units will receive precious donor human milk, children with serious medical conditions will be matched with loving companion dogs, nurses and medical support staff will participate in training and service missions and thousands of dollars will be awarded to organizations who share our mission.

Testimonials

"When we learned that our baby boy had a blood clot on his aorta, we were terrified. When we learned what it would cost to pay for the medications to dissolve the clot, we were even more terrified. How would we pay for this life saving medication? Then Rocky Mountain Children's Health Foundation made an extraordinary gift to us that we will never, ever forget. We cannot adequately express our gratitude to you all for helping us save our son. Thank you so much."

"Gareth was born with a posterior tongue tie, making it impossible for him to nurse. I eventually stopped producing milk because of unrelated health reasons. The first three months were terrible. After trying recommended alternatives such as dairy and plant-based milk and exhibiting severe reactions, Gareth's health quickly deteriorated and was diagnosed as failure to thrive. So my husband Gabriel and I turned to Mothers' Milk Bank. The day we started receiving milk donations, Gareth showed immediate improvements and has grown healthily ever since. With the help of the amazing women from all across the country who donated their precious milk and many generous financial donors, Mothers' Milk Bank offered more than 6,000 ounces of milk to keep our little boy alive and healthy."

"Being introduced to Rocky Mountain Children's Health Foundation has helped tremendously. Being able to juggle medical bills has allowed us to survive and live with everything else."

"Just one less thing in the list of worries or stressors. For going through a hard journey, it's as good as it can be, so you feel blessed. You feel like you're being watched over and helped and taken care of."

"Words cannot express how thankful my husband and I are to receive support. It is programs like these that give us relief and much needed help. No one plans to have a child early therefore you are never really ready for the challenges in the NICU and after. Thank you with all our hearts."

"The doctor told us breast milk is extremely beneficial because it lowers her risk of infection, and it's easier for her under-developed tummy to digest. She only needed 1 ml to start, but being a preterm mother, my milk did not come in right away. We were so grateful that a mother out there had donated her milk so our baby girl could have the best possible start to life."
