FREE Medical Care for Children in Chicago

December 2006 is when I discovered a "Precious Jewel" in Chicago (Shriners Hospital for Children Chicago). I served at Shriners as a volunteer recreation therapist which allowed me direct access and interaction with Shriners Staff and Patients.


Shriners Hospitals for Children provides FREE medical care for Children who suffer from Spinal Cord Injuries, Cleft Lip and Palate, Orthopaedic and Burn Injuries. As current Ambassador of Shriners Hospital for Children Chicago I've introduced the following people to this great medical institution.


* Illinois State Representative Camille Lilly. 


* Former White House Chief of Staff (now) Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel. 


And a host of other Social, Religious, Recreational, Educational, Political, Financial movers and shakers in Chicago and throughout the Nation via email, direct mail, twitter, and facebook. 


My experience with Shriners Hospital for Children Chicago remains magical, amazing, and humbling... playing wheelchair basketball with patients has truly been a gift of inspiration too me. 


That's why as a 1st hand witness of the greatness of Shriners Hospital for Children Chicago I humbly ask you to financially support this great institution on a monthly basis /or/ as a one time gift. No amount is to small or large. Please mail this POST with your donation to:
