Please Help Cohen Say "Thank You!"
My son is finally home, hopefully for good this time, after a lengthy stay at Lurie Children's Hospital due to a number of complications due to his 22Q Deletion Syndrome. The care that we received during our stay there was incredible, both from a medical standpoint and from the way the personal treatment of the doctors, nurses, social workers, and case managers. I could thank them every day for the rest of my life, and it wouldn't fully express the gratitude my wife and I have for their help. Since it would be difficult to say "thank you" to each person, I've decided to show my thanks the best way I know how, through an act of kindness. So on March 8th, I will be strapping on some comfortable shoes and an obnoxious outfit, and will dance for 13.1 straight hours for the The Chicago Dance Marathon benefitting Lurie Children's Hospital. All proceeds raised will go to the institution that helped my son, and so many other children across the Midwest and beyond. If you have the means, please donate to the cause here. If things are tight right now, please share on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Now I must work out my quads and hamstrings so I don't lock up while trying to pop N lock.
