My journey is NOT over! We still have work to do! My next challenge is running the New York City Marathon on November 5th! I am running for my patient partner-Olivia, and kids just like her.
* Olivia's story*
On March 12, 2012, Olivia came into this world 10 weeks early, weighing 2lbs, 5oz. Six days after she was born, her parents learned she suffered severe brain damage. In that moment, their world stopped. Their world imploded. Their lives forever changed.
In the following days they began to connect with the truly incredible network of doctors, nurses, and practitioners at Boston Children's Hospital. Olivia had 52 appointments at Children's during her first year and during each, her parents quickly learned how lucky they are to live so close to the #1 Hospital in the World.
Olivia's condition is complex, but at every step during her journey over the years-from routine check-ups to late-night emergency visits and everything in between- her and her family have been supported with knowledge, know-how and kindness.
Your contribution will make a difference in a child's life. Your donation will make a difference in Olivia's life.
