The Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation was established in memory of Garnet “Ace” Bailey, a Lynnfield resident who was killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Ace’s family has created the Foundation to honor his memory and to perpetuate his deep caring for the happiness of children.
The Foundation focuses on the well-being of hospitalized kids at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, Boston, through the building and renovation of hospital environments to reduce the stress of pediatric hospitalization by creating environments that are less clinical in appearance and more comforting and soothing for kids and their families.
