Meet Amelia and Sarah: 2022 Family Advocacy Day Champions

Amelia and Sarah are participating in Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day from June 12-14. Through this event, Amelia, Sarah and their family will discuss their health journey, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland’s role in providing them with necessary health care services, and why the public and our elected officials must invest in the future of patients like Amelia and Sarah.

Amelia and Sarah were both former foster youth and considered medically fragile when they were born. Amelia was born prematurely with cardiac issues and Sarah was born with hepatitis C and cardiac issues as well.
