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, more than 1,200 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others. I'm obsessed with yoga for my mind, body, and spirit. It's one of the few times that I can quiet my mind (and my mouth) other then when I'm sleeping!
Our family and many local families have benefited from the amazing services of Boston Children's Hospital. Some visits have been for broken bones and others have been more serious. You may know that my now 20 year old daughter was diagnosed with Chron's disease at age 11. After months of being sick and severe weight loss and stomach aches, she was admitted and we spent the weekend with the wonderful doctors, nurses, and social workers in the GI dept. Talia's been in remission for many years and still meets quarterly with her team in Boston. We are grateful for their support throughout her childhood and into young adulthood.
I hope you'll join me in making a donation to support familes coping with a sick child.
