I am excited and humbled to have a great charity tied to Mother Ball this year: Children’s Specialized Hospital based in Mountainside, NJ. This facility is where Oscar receives treatment on a weekly basis in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and custom leg and arm braces. As many of you know, my son Oscar was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) in 2014. Through this facility, families such as mine, are given the tools and support network necessary to take the path to recovery.
