THE STORY:

In April we attended an Open Heart Magic fundraiser with the Kubiak family, our neighbors that have become more like family to us over the past couple of years. Their daughter, Harper Jane, was diagnosed with Leukemia just days before her third birthday in November 2014. To say Harper is a special kid is the understatement of the century. She means the world to us and we’ve witnessed the force that is Harper over these past couple years as she’s kicked cancer’s ass. While at the event Ed and his charisma got me believing I could in fact do this and I was more than willing to support any organization that made Harper laugh again.

Please donate to bring smiles to kids going through a tough time!

About OHM

Open Heart Magic has pioneered an innovative way to reach children who are being treated for serious illness through the surprise, excitement and wonder of magic performed at their hospital bedside.

Our personalized interactions help children feel special, more confident and empowered during a scary and stressful time. By inviting them to be a part of the interaction, we energize kids and help them find the strength they need to heal. Because our Bedside Magic performances are one-on-one, we’re able to work with kids of all ages, regardless of physical or developmental restrictions. Our performances benefit the parents and siblings of these patients who are experiencing stress as well.

Open Heart Magic has seen incredible growth since it’s inception in 2004. The community of rock star volunteer magicians has grown drastically. In 2012 there were 38 magicians. And beginning in 2016, there are 120 magicians changing the hospital experience across Chicago.
