Dear Potential Donor to Riley Children's Hospital,
Riley Hospital for Children has been a huge part of my life since I was little. I cannot thank Riley enough for helping my family through many troubles and challenges. My sister Kaylen was diagnosed with Nueroblastoma (cancer in the adrenal glands which later spread to her brain) when she was 18 months of age and her doctor was a previous physician at Riley Hospital. Although she was not physically treated at Riley Hospital, I thank Riley for the knowledge that he developed in order to help my sister through her trials and treament. Additionally, my cousin Christina was diagnosed with Ependymoma (cancer in the brain and spinal cord) at a young age and she was treated at Riley Children's Hospital. I have heard nothing but good things about the treament she received at Riley. Riley is truly a wonderful hospital and does everything it can to help children in a troubling time of their lives. Riley Hospital makes it easier for kids to find a smile in midst of the hospital, making everything fun, colorful, and interactive. They remember how to be kids thanks to Riley!
Because of these experiences and my family history, I am pursing a career in nursing at IUPUI. My overall goal is to become a Pediatric DNP specializing in Oncology.
Today, I am a member of Jagathon, the IUPUI's version of a Riley Dance Marathon, and I am lacing up my dancing shoes! I will be participating in a Dance Marathon that benefits Riley Hospital for Children and works to spread awareness of all the terrific kids in Riley's care. I will be on my feet dancing, playing games, and interacting with the kids from Riley who come as guests. Any money you donate will go straight to Riley Hospital for Children to improve care and save lives.
