13-year-old Nathaniel and his family have no trouble relating to the “Wonder” storyline; they live it every day. Nathaniel was born with Treacher Collins syndrome and has been called “Auggie Pullman come to life” by author R.J. Palacio.

Nathaniel's message to others is simple. It echoes that of Auggie: Be kind.

Watch an exclusive interview with this “Wonder” child on @ABC2020

Erin is cancer-free. Her family finally has the chance to envision her long life ahead, so for Halloween she dressed as an old woman – and went trick-or-treating for the first time.

Seattle Children’s has opened the first CAR T-cell immunotherapy trial in the U.S. for children and young adults with relapsed or refractory CD19- and CD22-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia, with the goal of improving long-term outcomes for more patients like Erin.

Reid was diagnosed with mild spastic diplegia Cerebral Palsy and Hydrocephalus at 18 months old. Reid is resilient, he has undergone several surgeries, shunt revisions, procedures, and just last November underwent a huge multilevel SELMS surgery to lengthen the tendons and muscles in his legs, heel chords, and hips. Reid is such an inspiration to our family and to everyone who has the chance to meet him. He always has a smile on his face and doesn’t allow anything to get in his way. - Kaitlin, Reid's mom

After being treated for leukemia since 2015, 4-year-old #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Grayson will finally have his last chemotherapy at @seattlechildrens next week! His mom Sammantha tells us, "Grayson's basically known as the little boy who never cries. He doesn't let you sit with him when it's time to get his port accessed. He doesn't cry when the needle gets put in. He takes the chemo like a boss and rolls his eyes when there's something everyone thinks he can't do. He continually fights like a superhero! So proud of our little man!" Join us in celebrating Grayson's last chemotherapy treatment!

When Hudson was 2 1/2 months old, he spent more time in the hospital than at home. While recovering in the ICU from septic shock, he was evaluated for a liver transplant. Finding a donor match quickly is rare, but Hudson received a living transplant from someone in the family: his uncle, Trevor.

Today is Hudson’s 1st birthday. Thriving, happy and whole, we wish him the best. #HopeCareCure #seattlechildrens #seattlechildrenshospital

More than a year ago, 15-year-old Cassidy was celebrating her birthday doing what makes her happiest – singing and playing her ukulele in front of her friends, family and medical team. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, she’s preparing for another performance, this time for a much larger crowd. She’s working with Grammy-winning composer @mateomessina on an original song for Messina’s 20th annual Seattle Children’s benefit concert called Epoch. She’ll be performing the song alongside the Northwest Symphony Orchestra in front of nearly 2,500 people at @benaroyahall. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“She told me she had a dream to be a singer,” said Cassidy’s mom, Shannon. “I told her it probably wasn’t going to be much of an option. But here we are today. I’m eating my words, and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m excited to see what the future holds for her and to be able to ride this wave on her coat tails.”

Within 48 hours, 15-month-old Casey went from having a simple fever to open heart surgery. Now 18 months old, Casey is thriving. “Other than the scars, you wouldn’t know anything happened. We’re so happy that he’s talking, smiling, laughing and throwing temper tantrums like any other kid his age.” - Ed, Casey’s dad

Before Taylor's first birthday she had her foot amputated and replaced by a prosthesis. Despite multiple challenges, Taylor continued to grow and thrive as a dancer. “I don’t think my prosthesis defines me. It has made me stronger, but it’s not who I am. It’s part of me, a detachable part of me.”

@soundersfc star Jordan Morris learned he had type 1 diabetes when he was 9 years old. Recently, he sat down with a roomful of type 1 diabetes patients for an empowering visit. “Though it’s frustrating managing my diabetes at times, I am proud to deal with it. I’ve learned to never be ashamed of having diabetes.” #seattlechildrens #seattlechildrenshospital #gosounders #seattlesoundersfc

Cancer sometimes hits with a wave of fear, hopelessness and sense of defeat. For Atticus and his family, when their world seems to be upside down, they turn to hope. “The hard truth is that children are dying every day waiting for promises of new treatments that may never make it in time. Our kiddos deserve more than this. We, along with many others, continue to share hope and continue the search for a cure. Our goal is to promote understanding and empathy, and to empower those who hear us to action.” – Emily, Atticus’ mom
