The Little Victor’s Family Endowment (LIFE Fund) was established to ensure optimal care of critically ill and injured children for the next generation by supporting unique opportunities for acquiring advanced expertise and funding research opportunities in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. These goals will allow the development of innovative therapies to advance the care of our sickest children. The LIFE Fund would specifically support unique fellow educational programs, novel research projects, long-term outcome assessments, outreach efforts at the state, national and international levels, and quality improvement and patient safety initiatives.
