I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out because I want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids and families. During this day-long yogathon, 1,000 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others.
19 years ago my youngest daughter Faith was born prematurely on February 18 weighing just 1 pound 12 1/2 ounces. Just a few weeks later she was born she was transferred to Childrens' Hospital to undergo a surgery to close a valve in her heart...ok, maybe not the medical term...but trust me very scary for me.
We were fortunate enough to only be there for a few days, but too many families are there for months with no end in sight. The stress and anxiety associated with having a sick child is beyond imaginable.
This year donations will benefit the Wellness Program at Boston Children's.
The Wellness Program at Children's Hospital was designed to help patient families cope with the stress that comes with having a child endure ongoing treatments or long stays in the hospital. The program provides a sanctuary for parents and family, giving them a place to unwind and offering healing support.
Please support me in helping give strength to familes coping with a sick child.
