CHOP Patient Stories: ciaro

While Kira was raising one son Ciarlo, diagnosed with Spina Bifida, his older brother Dominic became very sick with incurable brain cancer.

Kira’s faith in God and determination to give Ciarlo his best life has driven her to stay positive and keep fighting. CHOP has been her partner with both of her children. Ciarlo sees his team often and knows CHOP as a second home. Kira ensures that Dominic is always remembered by sharing his story and by delivering toys to patients in the hospital with a sticker that reads "from Dominic."

Ciarlo is a great student and charismatic child who is working around his physical limitations to make a difference as a Children’s Miracle Network Ambassador.


On December 3rd and 4th from 6a-7p, 98.1 WOGL and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are teaming up to raise money to support patient care programs at CHOP. Learn more here.
