Just recently Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago has touched the lives of two sweet little girls in our family. For any parent, your worst fear is something happening to your children. Our experiences were nothing short of terrifying.

When we first received the news that our little ones had something serious going on we immediately felt fear, panic, stress & helplessness. At one point both Elise & Emma were at Lurie Children's Hospital at the same time. When you walk through the doors at Lurie Children's Hospital you feel a sense of relief come over you. Every single staff member from the ER staff, the surgeons, the nursing staff, cafeteria employees, security guards and everyone in between are what get you through your stay.

 

We as a family would like to pay it forward. Lurie Children's Hospital was beyond excited when we brought up doing a book drive for them. They are always looking for new toys & books for their family and patient play areas and even gifts for each patient to bring home!

 

When Elsie had her emergency surgery she was not nervous at all and that is thanks to all of the incredible staff. They treated her and my husband like FAMILY. She now has a book that she brought home upon her release and points it out and says 'that's what I got from the hospital'. To some this may not be much but to us, it means she doesn't remember the bad or scary.

 

When Emma's surgeon came out to tell us the good news I had that moment you see on T.V where all you can do is break down and cry and hug them. The staff was nothing short of the BEST.

As Emma & Elsie still continue their road to 'recovery' we hope to continue receiving great news & bless the staff at the next follow up with boxes of books & toys!

 

If you have had a similar experience please feel free to join us in helping give back to those who made our stay at Lurie as pain free as possible.
