Our grandson, Dominic, is in short, OUR HERO. He has faced every health challenge with the very best attitude you can imagine. He faces everything in life like that, too. I thank God for him every day - and I thank God for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. We look forward to the future to not only see what health strides will be made in the treatment of HLHS, but also to see what Dominic is going to do in spite of it!
Why am I doing this?
The short answer is that I want to do something that helps kids, and I can't think of a better organization to support than Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
The longer answer is that by running or walking in this event for Children's, I know I am raising funds that support the care provided to kids, from life-saving cancer and heart treatments all the way to life-changing community care. Every day, Children’s is working to make Wisconsin kids the healthiest in the nation and my support and fundraising is critical to this work.
Community investment in Wisconsin’s kids has afforded many of Children’s amazing accomplishments and has helped to pave the way for an exciting future. Here is a snapshot of what community support has enabled:
~ Translational research that improves patient care and outcomes and continues to move toward cellular therapies that will eventually prevent disease
~ Countless programs and services that support families and are not reimbursed by Medicaid or other insurance
~ Sustained extraordinary care in our heart program, leading the country with a nationally ranked, outcomes-based program
I can make a real difference for an organization making a real difference for kids. If you have it in your heart to help, please donate now.
