Phillip Amy Friedrich
We would like to invite you to join Hudson’s Heroes as we participate in the Des Moines Marathon’s 5k event to raise money for Blank Children’s Hospital. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to Blank Hospital specifically towards Blank Pediatric Therapy. The goal of the fundraiser is to completely furnish a therapy room for kids with all of the necessities for speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. Hudson has benefitted from these therapies and we are so thankful to this clinic!
Here is a link to our team page where you can sign up to run or donate https://www.crowdrise.com/Hudson-s-Heroes/fundraiser/phillipfriedrich and another link to the event https://www.crowdrise.com/BlankChildrensAllStars2017.
Our son was diagnosed shortly after birth with an incredibly invasive brain tumor at Blank Children’s Hospital and was given a very bleak prognosis. Hudson is now almost 9 years old and just entered the 2nd grade! To get us to this point, we have leaned on the talent, love and compassion of dozens upon dozens of doctors, nurses, therapists and caregivers at Blank Children’s Hospital. Blood tests, MRI scans, chemotherapy, emergency room visits, physical therapy, you name it and we’ve probably been there and done that at Blank!
The doctors, nurses and therapists at Blank Children’s Hospital are an amazing group of people. We were reminded of that awesomeness back in the spring when Hudson suffered through some seizures and we spent 2 nights in the Hospital evaluating his condition. For a social kid like Hudson, it’s hard to keep him contained, let alone hooked up to an IV and having tests run on him. The Blank Children’s Hospital team helped throughout it all and provided distractions and a happy, smiling face to help during the tough times.
We hope that you never get to experience the wonderful team of folks at Blank, but know that if your kids were to ever need something, there is a team of wonderful, caring and brilliant people here in Des Moines who will take care of your family. Please join us in supporting this fantastic organization!
