-Help me make this Happen!
As most of you know Joey was very ill and in critical condition a little over a month ago. He was admitted to CHAM and that's when we found out just how serious this was. The wonderful people from CHAM made everything a little easier. Not just for Joey but for Aitza and I. They took care of us just as much as they did for Joseph. Their positive attitude, honesty and clear concern for Joseph was very comforting. The jokes and fun despite the situation made Joseph feel that much better. I also work with CHAM and can personally say from working behind scenes that these doctors do EVERYTHING they can for every patient. International patients, people with out insurance, nothing will stop them from doing their best. No one gets turned away and everyone gets treated the same way. With the upmost concern and care they can muster.
I ran the NYC Marathon last year for myself, just something I've always wanted to do. This year I'm motivated by something completely different. For my son who told me how much easier they made it for him, for CHAM who treated him and all his roommates with the most amazing and sincere care. Most of all just because they do there job and they do it well! Walking the hallways of my job I hear my name being called out and its the people who have worked with Joseph. They remember him, they remember me and the situation. They even ask and send there love to my wife and remember her by name! I always walk away with a smile on my face. These people deserve the best because they give the best and then some.
Help me celebrate them. Help me raise money so they can continue to do there amazing work. Help motivate me to run this 26.2 miles with a smile on my face because it being done for a wonderful cause. Well, maybe not a smile on my face the whole time..... lol. That last 2 miles, Oy.... But if my brain is still working and I can muster a smile I will!!! Reach down deep for your boy. Love you all and I LOVE CHAM!
