I’m joining thousands of patients, families and supporters for Cincinnati Walks for Kids to raise money to help advance cures and improve care for kids and families who are counting on Cincinnati Children’s for hope and healing. Please sponsor me!
Logan was admitted to Cincinnati Children's at three weeks old. He had a blood clot that led to seizures and two strokes within three days of each other. The first week at the hospital was the longest week our of lives because we didn't know if he was going to live or die. Once we got into the second week knowing he was going to live, we weren't sure what Logan was going to be like...was he going to be a child that we hoped we would get a smile from every once in a while or was he going to be a typical kid. He is now almost seven years old and I am happy to report that we are closer to being a typical kid than just a smile once in a while. He is walking by himself with very little assistance (he walks everywhere in a walker). We have been in virtual school all year and while it has been a challenge, it has been a blessing as well. Being able to see what the teachers and therapists do firsthand has helped me help him. He knows his ABC's, 123's, recognizes all his colors, recognizes numbers in the 100's, knows over 30 words (recognizes them) and is reading (we know this because he can pick answers based upon the book and the questions we ask him). While he doesn't talk, we were able to get him a device to help him communicate.
This is why we support Cincinnati Children's. If it wasn't for them, Logan would not be here today or where we are today. We see them for lots of reasons and while I hate going to the hospital, Cincinnati Children's makes the stay a little bit easier.
Please consider supporting Team Logan and Cincinnati Children's Hospital. It is because of you that Logan has made the progress he has and will continue to make!
Now, more than ever, each of us can make a difference in the life of a sick child. We’re changing the outcome together.
