THE STORY:

When you have a child with medical needs, it can be one of the hardest things in the world to endure. I have never been so challenged in my life, as I was when my twins were born, and one could not come home with us.  

He was born with Gastroschisis, and required surgery after an almost three month hospital stay. Those were the three most difficult months of my life. I was so torn between my two newborn babies, and as a first time mommy was very overwhelmed by it all. However, I must say (and this fundraising page is a tribute), that the only thing that got me and my son through those hard times was the AMAZING staff and facilities at the Children's Hospital. 

Something that comforted me were the extra steps that the hospital took to make my baby's environment feel more like "home" than a hospital. I was so touched to find swings, bouncies, and mobiles in his room! So I promised myself that I would find a way to contribute to providing this same comfort to other children (and parents) in this situation.

Like so many of us I will never be able to fully pay back the Angels of the Children's Hospital, for the care they gave my son in the NICU. If you or someone you love have been cared for by these Angels join me in giving back as a small expression of our gratitude for the selfless work they do every day of the year. 

Please, I emplore you to donate ANYTHING that you can afford to give. No number is too small, and a little bit from everyone can go a very long way! 

If you are not in a position to give financially, we would also VERY MUCH appreciate it if you would SHARE this fundraising page with your friends.

We're also going to be collecting items from the Kosair Children's Hospital Foundation's Wish Book at Louisville Dragon Boat Festival (Sept. 10th 2016 at Waterfront Park.  For more event info please visit: www.LouisvilleDragonBoat.com)
