My heart goes out to the victims, and all the friends and family impacted by the bombing at the Boston Marathon yesterday.
Anytime tragedy strikes, I am deeply saddened by the injuries and loss of life. And as is often the case, I am equally inspired by those who rushed in to help. It’s difficult to make sense of events like this, unless you pay attention to the helpers. In Boston, emergency workers, volunteers, and even the runners themselves, rushed in to care for the injured. This kind of spirit and dedication is what lifts us up when times are tough and gets us …Continue reading →

This passion and clear sense of purpose shine through in so many ways at our hospital.

I am so happy that Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin gave me the opportunity to meet Donald Driver and other Packers players earlier this month at the Donald Driver Charity Softball Game. It was truly the experience of a lifetime. I will never forget it.
I was picked because I go to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin often because I have type 1 diabetes. I was diagnosed when I was 4 years old. If I’d never been diagnosed, I never would have been able …Continue reading →
