Which now that I type that, man how hypacritical? Parents who have children at St Judes or the American Family Children's Hospital cry and feel horrible I'm guessing every work day. :/
So this morning, Q106 is having a radioathon for the Children's Hospital, somewhere we have been, so I kept it on to listen.
Our 2 visits there were for a very minor reason but P had to see a specialist and that is where you go, but those 2 times made a huge impression on me. I realized just how lucky we really are.
So many sick children, really sick children. Kids in wheel chairs, with bald heads, with obvious illnesses. God that waiting room was packed. All I could do was hug Parker a little tighter and pray to God that we would never have to go back there for anything.
If you have never been to this hospital, it is amazing. So many cool little details that I'm sure kids just eat up. They just redid their concession stand area to offer families and staff healthier options.
I heard on the radio that they are raising money to keeping adding fun things to a play area. An area where the children who are sick, and their siblings, can go and play for a bit and just forget why they are there. They are also funding a program that helps the children who are sick to understand what is going on with their body and what could happen to them.
The radio always has a family on to share their story and one dad's words make me lose my breath. "You just never expect to think "My daughter is going to die."
Candy said something else that did me in..."What book are you going to read your child tonight? If it's not called, "I have cancer" then you should donate. If you have the option to read a book that doesn't explain how sick you are...you need to donate."
Here is where your money is going...
So on that note....Donate
