Manny years ago we experienced the special care that the Children’s hospital gives when Michael my son was flown on a flight for life from Evergreen. The compassion and professionalism shown to our family as we waited for days, counting the hours and prayed for Michael, helped us get through this horrific ordeal. I had time to reflect on and acknowledge how fortunate we are for family, friends, and the endless opportunities life provides.
Each year Cheri and I give back to charity’s by paying it forward. Our special Christmas present to our selves is gifting books to the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. Now this may sound selfish but it makes us feel wonderful to have helped a child and family in their moment of need.
We ask for nothing in return so imagine my surprise when Cheri told me that we had been honored and listed in the Members of Children’s Circle of Promise. Wow, was I chuffed. Being recognized is an act that brings a smile and makes the gift of giving, even more special.
This year please consider giving a gift to this special institution. Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation – Children’s Fund. Make a family smile with hope and joy and get the special care the child needs.
