"I first learned about the Kids Path program in December of 1997 when my second child, Tommy, was diagnosed with a very rare congenital heart defect shortly after his birth. In the weeks that followed, the Kids Path nurses provided medical care for Tommy while also emotionally supporting me and my family with hugs, prayers and encouragement. Just knowing how much they cared helped me to stay strong each day, and be better prepared to face whatever the outcome was going to be. Tommy lost his life shortly after his open heart surgery in February 1998. Although he only lived a little over two months, he forever changed our lives. I will always be thankful to Kids Path for being there for me and my family in our time of need."
