Jillian sends her love

First, and most importantly, I truly hope this finds you, your family, and friends safe and well in this turbulent, unstable time.

I wanted to share this picture that our miracle child, Jillian, created.  I asked her to color a picture that I could give to our friends who raise money for OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois – her Hospital.  To me it says that brighter days are ahead. And They Are!

With Jillian’s many health issues, this virus could have a horrible consequence on her little body. But right now, she is safe and cutting out paper hearts for people to put in their windows to show support for all the healthcare workers.   Her mom, Julie, is one of our healthcare workers – putting in extra hours in the OSF Emergency Department.

I’m proud of OSF and have peace of mind about how OSF HealthCare is preparing to fight the coronavirus.

People everywhere are asking how they can support us as we manage patients with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). OSF HealthCare has launched our Pandemic Response Fundraising Campaign. The funds raised will support our pandemic health workers, a strong and vital digital health response and crisis support for those bravely working each day directly against the virus. If you’d like to make a donation click on this fundraising link.

Please stay safe and healthy.  Jillian and I are sending you love and a virtual hug.
