Leaving a Legacy

When Helen Waterson passed away at the end of 2016, she made sure that her and her late husband’s love and devotion for ICC and Grace Children’s Hospital would be carried on. Alongside their children, she left part of her will to ICC, showing the priority ICC has had in their lives since the ‘60s. And all of her children agreed: this is how it should be.

Honoring the Etiennes

When we look back to the beginnings of Grace Children’s Hospital, there are so many who helped make James and Virginia’s vision possible. Hilda and Napoleon Etienne were definitely two of them. Caring, loving, and devoted to their community, they played a significant role in the beginnings of the hospital in the 1960s.

Forgotten to Friendship

Cesar, an adolescent boy in the Dominican Republic with mobility and language issues, dropped out of school in the third grade because there was no way to help him learn. When Cesar started ICC’s new adolescent program in the Santiago area, he was shy and hardly spoke at all. Now, he begins the day by walking around the table greeting everyone with a firm handshake and big smile.
