A friend of mine is participating in a charity event called Extra Life, which benefits children's hospitals around the country, and I would like to share his request for support. You can read his story, in his own words, here. The tl/dr would probably read: "Newborn son had open heart surgery on Christmas Eve at 4 days old. Baby now thriving, in large part due to amazing people at Akron Children's Hospital. Dad now wants to give back a little." But seriously, click that link and read his heartwrenching post, and then click through the link at the end of it to donate a little bit to support this very worthy cause. Or if you like, just click here to go straight there and donate.
I wrote about my experience at Akron Children's Hospital last year, and I can attest to the amazing individuals who work there, providing the highest level of care. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for that place.
