Wozniewski Family 2020 Un-Gala Fundraising Event
Faced with a child’s illness life can stop overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. For parents who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs, there’s an added stress. Distance. Most families have to travel hours for treatment. Living expenses quickly add up. Long drives, lost jobs, worried siblings, sleeping in cars. Being far from family and friends. These are extra burdens no family should have to experience.
Thankfully, RMHC is able to help when it’s needed most. They keep families with sick children near to each other and the medical care and resources they need.
This mission became especially personal to Andrew and I, when our daughter, Emma Drew, was born in April of 2016. Emma was born with a genetically inherited condition call Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLO). SLO causes a multitude of health issues, and due to these health issues, our Emma was in the NICU at Comer Children's Hospital for six months before her passing. The RMHC house at University of Chicago provided us the ability to stay close by with her during surgeries and during her most difficult days.
I am doing what I love, to fundraise for RMHC and the families they support. And I need your help! By making a donation today, we can give families the gift of laughter, love and time together. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s.
So, help me raise funds #forRMHC and keep families together by donating today!
