We are walking because our friend Alex was in the hospital when he was sick. We wanted him to have the best hospital that he could have so he can feel better. We want to raise money for the other kids too so they can feel as well as he did. We hope this can help the hospital get them games, board games, fortnite, music, and whatever else they like. We also hope the money can be used to find new medicine so they feel better.
Thank you for you support!
Each summer for the past four years, I (Maya) have been the nanny for three amazing kids and their wonderful family. Their oldest son, Alex, is the same age as Audai and they became fast friends with their similarities in everlasting energy, sports, silliness, and wrestling. This past fall, Alex was diagnosed with Steven-Johnson Syndrome. It is a very rare, severe allergic reaction which causes a rash and blisters on all mucus membranes (mouth/throat, eyes, skin, etc) and resulted in Alex being in the intensive care unit (ICU) at Children’s Hospital for 46 days; 24 of those days were spent with Alex on a breathing tube and sedated. Alex and his family have become close friends to myself, Sam, and Audai. We spent those 46 days thinking of them constantly and helping in all the ways we could. Our relief was profound when he turned the corner and began his path to recovery. It was the amazing Children’s Hospital, it’s nurses, doctors, and specialists that did the work to return Alex to the rambunctious, happy, and silly boy we know. Audai and Alex were back to wrestling just a few months after he returned home.
Audai and I will be joining Alex and his family to walk and raise money for Boston Children’s hospital. Audai set a lofty goal of $600.00 and is working hard to raise it. Please support us if you are able!
Maya, Sam, and Audai
I'm fundraising on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital because:
I BELIEVE no parent should experience the loss of a child.
I BELIEVE no sibling should have to watch their brother or sister suffer.
I BELIEVE that by investing in the best doctors and scientists we can save lives - today!
I BELIEVE that donations received before today helped a child I love and
I BELIEVE that every dollar I raise for Boston Children's Hospital will have a ripple effect and could be THE dollar that changes everything for a future family in crisis.
Please consider a donation to support my fundraising efforts... because I KNOW that when we band together WE WILL help fund Boston Children's exceptional care and groundbreaking research that can help every child.
