BENEFITING: CHILDRENS MERCY HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
I accompanied my nephew, Charlie Nevitt through his successful battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia that was diagnosed when he was 4 years old. His mother, Laura, and I will always be grateful to Children's Mercy for the excellent care given to Charlie and the compassion that was shown to our entire family. Please help me raise $1500 for Children's Mercy. That is the cost of the mobile gaming station that Charlie would play during uncomfortable procedures such as lumbar punctures. Watching a child calm and entertain himself playing video games while a long needle is being inserted into his spine makes your realize how hard Childrens Mercy works, not just to heal, but also to comfort the precious human beings in which they have been entrusted.
