The time and talent behind the scenes

Guest Blogger, Maureen Beach, Colin’s Mom

Well, we are getting ready to get on a plane to go to Washington DC.

We are honored to represent Dayton Children’s and the Children’s Hospital Association.  The kids, especially Colin, are excited to see Capitol Hill and learn how Washington DC works!  We will be meeting with Congressman, Senators and maybe even Speaker of the House John Boehner!

We hope to convey our story of childhood illness and the many facets that we as a family face.  When you are in the hospital, you really do not get to see the time and talent that goes on behind the scenes.  We have been fortunate over the years and being with the Dayton Children’s Ambassador Program to learn about challenges that these children’s hospitals face.  There has been significant funding cuts that affect different aspects of a hospital.  We need to make sure that Congress understands what it takes to protect children’s health in these trying economic times to ensure a strong future for children like Colin.

Hope we have great weather…
