2019 marks the 12th year of Team Carter. This team charity celebrates Carter Biata and the organization (RMH of SNJ) that helped give him a chance at an improved life after being diagnosed with Spina Bifida during a routine ultrasound in 2003. The RMH gave the Biata family a place to stay and thrive for three months after Carter's mother, Marcia, endured in-utero surgery to improve Carter's long term quality of life. The family has also stayed at the RMH of SNJ countless times in the past 15 years as Carter needs to return regularly to CHOP to receive treatment and care. Over the past 12 years, Team Carter and its supporters have raised enough money to furnish and decorate a room in the RMH, and make it a “Give 365 Room”... this means that the room is available for families to stay in at no charge all year long. In addition, they have assisted with countless other purchases including computers, playground equipment, etc. In 2018 we needed to completely refurnish and redecorate the Team Carter room (as it needed a total face-lift after years of use and abuse) and our supporters made that possible (see the video and pictues of our new Team Carter room).
The RMH is dependent on the generosity of others. Team Carter’s goal is to create awareness and support for this organization that turns family’s tragedies into memorable experiences. The staff, volunteers and other families at the RMH help families find the strength and character needed to bear the unbearable. With your donation, you can be part of the next miracle and help the RMH continue to be an oasis of strength and support for families facing unimaginable hardships. Thank you for your ongoing contributions and dedication to our cause! God Bless!
Disclaimer: In the video, the commentator says that Carter's favorite team is the Lakers. He WANTS and NEEDS you to know that he is and always has been a WARRIORS fan.
