Why am I writing to you asking for your support? I am raising funds as part of Team Connecticut Children running in the Hartford Marathon.
I believe in the mission of Connecticut Children’s and want to share my enthusiasm and hope you choose to support me with a contribution. As a Physician Assistant in the Emergency Department of Connecticut Children’s I work with a talented, dedicated, highly educated group of people committed to the task of holding the line against illness, injury and most of all fear and despair. And this is why I choose to ask for your help because everyone can identify with the anguish and unknown of a sick child. I am blessed to be a father of three wonderful children, but it was with help of the fine medical professionals at Connecticut Children's that we got Jonah treatment for epilepsy. When I walk into a room to see a new patient in the ED I carry with me the heavy heart of father, husband, and practitioner having known the fear.
A political, cultural and financial tempest have created increasing challenges for our department and institution. But despite these challenges we continue to hold the line resolute in our mission and on task.
I believe the training and the running of a marathon hold some comparison to these beliefs. For me running is so many things, but most of all, it makes me feel alive and for that I am thankful. So please join me with a pledge if you’ve known the fear of the human condition but also the thrill of you’re body alive.
