A two-year-old boy from Pitt County is running around, squealing with delight, because of Duke.
He developed a serious case of RSV a year ago and was near death. His local hospital could do nothing else for him. His parents couldn’t accept that and called Duke Children’s Hospital. A crew from Duke went to get the toddler, stabilized him and brought him back to Durham.
Fast forward one year and he’s running down the halls, HEALTHY!!!
It’s one of the many miracles at Duke. Next Tuesday, we begin our 20th Radiothon for Duke Children’s Hospital. This will be my sixth year. I never knew how strong the human spirit is or how brave a young child could be until I did my first Radiothon. I saw firsthand how important it is to support the lifesaving, lifegiving, efforts at the hospital. It’s an investment that pays off in lives, in children living their lives.
Your children. My children. Our children.
