In 2014, Charlie North became the first pediatric patient to receive proton therapy on the medical center campus. Proton beam therapy is a highly accurate form of radiation therapy used to treat tumors near vital organs with greater precision, minimizing exposure to other organs and healthy tissue.

We see hundreds of kids with diabetes every year. Today, in honor of World Diabetes Day, our diabetes educator is sharing Braden's story with our patient care blog, FromTheBedside.org. We hope this brave 10-year-old inspires you as much as he inspires us!

We'll miss you, Caleb, but we're so happy to see you leave. After spending nearly all of his eight-month-life in the hospital, Caleb went home yesterday.

If a patient's dream is to go to prom - let no illness stand in the way! This is why our nurses and staff are the best in the world.

There's hardly a sweeter sound in the halls of the hospital than the ringing of this bell. Let's hear it for Janet -- she finished chemo over the weekend!

Capt. David Johnson spent 25 years protecting our freedom as a pilot in the U.S. Navy. Today he's using his military experience to help St. Louis Children's Hospital ensure top quality care for its patients.

We want to thank Capt. Johnson... and all of our nation's veterans for their service overseas and here at home.

Read how Captain David Johnson is using his skills learned in the Navy at St. Louis Children's Hospital:

Chris is alive today thanks to heroic work by the first responders who came to his rescue after an ATV accident. It's our privilege to care for him. Thanks to KTVI and Tom O'Neal on FOX 2 for the wonderful feature.
