Simon's Lurie Children's Hospital Fundraising Page


Our youngest daughter was born with a rare liver disorder that required a liver transplant.   This past year the team at Lurie Children's Hospital were able to perform this life-saving operation.    I am forever grateful to the top-notch team of; doctors, nurses, and support staff for their amazing skill and caring nature. 

I love the Chicago Marathon and will be running it for the third year straight this coming fall.   I finished at 4:10 this last year and hope to break the 4:00 mark in 2017.   My personal best in the marathon distance is 4:04.   I can do it!  

I am also raising money to give back to the team at Lurie.   Please help me reach my goal. 

Here are just a few ways your donations could help:

$35 can provide a comfort item for a premature infant to ensure the smallest and most fragile babies heal and grow faster.

$60 can help provide inpatient entertainment and distractions to help patients reduce stress and have fun while undergoing treatment.

$120 can help provide small lab supplies for one of the hospital’s clinical trials to ensure our children have access to the latest treatments and therapies.

$240 can help provide supplies for the Lurie Children’s classroom so that children in the hospital can continue their education.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.

On behalf of the patients and families of Lurie Children’s, thank you for your support!
