How did we get connected with Shriners? After coming home with Sean both my mother in law & Mom both suggested we look online for information about Shriners Hospitals. To me personally it seemed way out of reach. I mean why would they want to help us? We had nothing to offer in return. We talked and decided to fill out an application and submit it. Dr Burruss, plastic surgeon here in town on the cleft team was very happy to sign the needed paperwork and refer us to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. In less than 3 month’s time we were on our way to Cincinnati, OH. Since that time, Blue has had a total of 9 surgeries: We are scheduled to return to Cincinnati Shriners Hospital in June to start planning for his next surgery. We do not know how many more he may have. All I can tell you is we are ready and know he is always in the best hands, starting with his favorite drivers Wayne & Wally. He is my little hero and I’m so proud of him.
Thank you to the Nobles & Ladies at Al Chymia Shrine Temple for welcoming us into your family with open arms. We feel truly blessed to be part of such a great organization and be able to give back in our son’s honor. I’m proud of my husband for making the decision to become a Mason & Shriner. You all are our extended family and we look forward to our two youngest growing up here.
