I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out with the Power Yoga of Cape Cod team 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.
As many of you know I spent a lot of my time as a child, into young adulthood at Boston Children's Hospital. The staff there are some of the most caring, dedicated, compassionate and smart people I have ever met. From the sanitation staff, respiratory therapists, phlembotists, nurses to the surgeons, everyone at Childrens has a special place in my heart. The Pulmonary department, Dr. Ahmet Uluer, Dr. Donovan and NP Neeli Yavour were by my side every step of the way through every exacerbation and beside me to celebrate every little victory. Withouth these amazing humans, and the entire team at Children's I would not be who I am today and where I am today. I would not be taking the journey to become certified to teach yoga. Boston Children's Hospital is a very very special place for my family and many many other families. Please help me support Children's Hospital so they may continue the amazing work they do each and every day. This year donations will benefit Boston Children's Wellness Program and Every Child Fund.
