On October 25, 2014 Jonathan participated in the Extra Life 24 hour game-a-thon to raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital. This fundraiser provides the money so that no child is turned away regardless of their family’s financial situation.
Children’s Hospital has done so much for my little cousin Gracie in her battle against CF. She is routinely admitted to the hospital to get her lungs cleaned out. It isn’t a pleasant experience for anyone nevermind a young kid. But Children’s has always gone above and beyond to turn this scary disease into something less frightening for my cousin.
My heart broke when I found out how many kids don’t get treatment because their families cannot afford to pay. Thankfully Extra Life helps those kids in need.
PLEASE consider making a DONATION
