The annual appeal…the first plea

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that Isaac was a patient at CHOC in Santa Ana, CA immediately after his birth.
CHOC is short for Children’s Hospital of Orange County. It’s right by Disneyland, and under the influence of serious drugs after the C-section, the only hospital on the list that I recognized. Seriously.


Every year, CHOC has a fundraiser. A walk through Disneyland, DCA and Downtown Disney. This is their single biggest fundraiser, with teams coming back year after year after year, celebrating their children’s lives, and their commitment to CHOC and keeping it open to anyone who needs it.

This place is located in one of the lowest income neighborhoods in Santa Ana. It’s also right across from a shopping mall. Go figure.

What I’m asking here is if you so feel compelled, sponsor a walker. This year, the team that I’m throwing my support behind is Team Mouseplanet.  Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix is in charge, and I know Adrienne Krock is most likely walking. These two people are amazing and Adrienne K. has a son that’s only 2 months younger than Isaac!

But, sponsor the team. It does make a world of difference-this hospital is amazing.

See the date on that photo? Yeah. We did the walk…Isaac had a blast…and this moment was made possible by CHOC. So were all of our other moments….
