Picture this, a lecture hall full of doctors. A sea of white coats. All gathered to further their knowledge in caring for and saving the lives of children. A speaker is introduced and makes way to the podium…eager to inspire and ready to make a difference.
What if even one doctor walked out of the lecture and went on to use that new knowledge to save a life? What if a family was given more time with their child because of something that struck a chord with a doctor during this lecture? Imagine the possibilities.
Imagine if you could help make this happen? And what if it was all about giving Audrey’s story wings to enhance forever the care and outcomes of babies in need of advance medical knowledge in areas where little current insight is available?
Together, we have the unique opportunity…better yet, the challenge, to bring this vision to life. You have asked, “How can we help?”
This is how her story lives on…not just for a year or two, but forever.
We are working directly with the Children’s Hospital Foundation to develop a self-sustaining endowment. We have pledged to raise $100,000 to permit a yearly lecture program, specifically on neonatology and cardiovascular surgery and to foster change among doctors on the cutting edge from around the world. We cannot think of a better way for Audrey’s story to live on by inspiring doctors to be better, to do more, to work together, and to think outside the box!
Several of the physicians currently at OU Children’s have come as a result of their own visit to the hospital for a program like this, and this happens in both directions. The children of Oklahoma are in incredible hands with these people, a program like this can play a role in recruiting even more talented and dedicated doctors. Exchange among doctors will help children everywhere!
Originally, we hoped to raise $20,000. Over $15,000 has been donated already! We believe, without a doubt, that raising another $85,000 can and will happen.
If 850 donated $100, the goal is met.
If 500 donated $170, this program lives.
If 250 donated $340, her story passes into the hope of many children to come and their parents’ dreams.
Will you help us help future babies and children live longer, healthier lives? What if a lecture program like this, allowing exchange of cutting edge information among the best of the best, would have given us even one more day with our girl? What if…
Together, we can make sure that Audrey’s 81 earthly days mean many more days for many more children.
Send this to your family and friends and share this on social media, with heartfelt hopes that Audrey’s story continues to inspire future caregivers and to answer prayers of parents. To those who have already made over $15,000 a dream come true, thank you. May you be blessed for your generosity.
With deep and unending gratitude,
Chris & Rachel, together with our parents
