Thank you for visiting my page and supporting me! As a medical student, when visiting the hospital, I see the devastating effects of chronic illness on families. Spending days, weeks, or months in the hospital to care for loved ones is challenging, especially when the patient is your child. Never Give Up Ever is a Burlington-based nonprofit providing support to the families of children in long-term care at UVM Children’s Hospital. Never Give Up Ever recognizes the financial burden that families deal with when they have to take prolonged time off work to be by their child’s side. Never Give Up Ever helps families make rent payments, car payments, assists with grocery bills etc. By running the Vermont City Marathon on behalf of Never Give Up Ever I am hoping to contribute to their cause in any way possible. I appreciate any help!
