When grandson Akira had pneumonia, little did he know it would make him a rock star. Because of the excellent care that he received in the pediatric unit at Asante in Medford, OR, he and his mom have spoken often at fund raisers for The Children's Miracle Network. Although Akira is over talking about this because it seems a long time ago in the life of a 14 year old, opportunities do arise for him to once again help other parents and children know they have world-class pediatric care at the Medford hospital.
Please, watch the attached video. It is a short news story that includes interviews with Akira and Michelle. I even took some of the snapshots they use to illustrate the healthy Akira. And once again, I will add a PSA and say that if you are looking for a charity to support The Children's Miracle Network helps pediatric units in many regional hospitals and is worthy of your support.
