My sister and I were born at 26 1/2 weeks weighing 2lbs 13oz & 2lbs 10oz. There were many complications to being premature, some of which led to Valley Children's being my home for the first few months of life. I wasn't expected to live, and if I did- my parents were told I would never be able to walk and that I would be in a wheelchair my entire life. The staff at Valley Children's is incredible & saved my life! They have always been near and dear to my heart & I've felt a need to give back however I could. Every child deserves a chance at life & I am inspired to help make a difference. By coming together – we can make a positive impact & make change for the better! There are many quotes I live by, but this one in particular is at the top of the list, “Your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give.” Amen to that!
