Welcome to Just Jude's Change Bandit Page!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my personal fundraising page to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital- my home away from home for the past 9 years.
At the very bottom of this message there is the ACH PR approved note about how world class ACH is, how many kids they serve, how important every donation is . . and all of that is true.
But I am going to give you my side of the story. Oh yeah- that girl in the picture? That's my sister Jane. She loves ACH too. And she's a super hero in her own right- just don't tell her I said that.
I live with a handful of medical conditions & challenges that are made better, or just a new normal, by Docs, Nurses and therapists at ACH.
At first, they weren't sure I would ever walk. I took my 1st steps in Physical Therapy at ACH- a few years late but I took them.
And I haven't looked back.
Noone was sure what was going on inside my lumpy head and brain as a baby, but I had my 1st seizure at ACH too. . . and now they medically manage those pretty darn well.
My guts- well, they are a work in progress with a chronic condition that is surgically repaired and medically managed with CUTTING EDGE, like super specialized to the point that only a handful of other patients have ever had the tube set up I do, treatment by the team GI Surgical and bowel team at ACH.
For me, what can be fixed medically has been fixed at ACH.
What continues to occur is met head on by my ACH team.
And whatever comes my way in this body and brain of mine, I know we will face together & thrive in spite of, thanks to Akron Children's Hospital.
So that is my story of why ACH is is important and why I hope you will donate. Oh- and I really want to make sure they always have my favorite orange juice boxes in stock. Chocolate icream cups too- so every penny counts!
Grateful, prayerful & hopeful.
