DJ will forever be a part of those he loved and who loved him unequivocally in return.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Dittman Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was founded in 1855 by Francis West Lewis, MD. After visiting the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London, Dr. Lewis decided to create the first hospital in the United States dedicated to finding cures and treating illnesses and injuries specific to children. He persuaded two friends, T. Hewson Bache, MD, and R.A.F. Penrose, MD, to join him in the venture. In the Hospital's first year, it had 12 beds and a dispensary. Today, Children’s Hospital has 546 beds and more than 1 million outpatient visits and inpatient admissions each year. Patients around the world benefit from our major research advances in a variety of areas including cardiac, genetics, cancer, fetal surgery, neonatology and automobile safety. Our scientists have also pioneered several vaccines against childhood illness and continue to investigate new vaccines to fight deadly diseases.
