Get Well Gabby and A.I. duPont Believe in a Cure!

Get Well Gabby presents a gift to Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children.
About 6 months ago, we met an amazing man that has a passion and knowledge to help change pediatric cancer. Dr. Kolb, the Director of Oncology and Blood Disorder’s from Nemours/A.I. duPont contacted us at The Get Well Gabby Foundation to see how we could help their hospital.
Gabby was not treated at duPont during her journey but there was a connection that we felt immediately to this hospital, staff, and team of doctors. The connection and relationship grew stronger when we were allowed on to the Oncology floor in December to deliver books and serve pizza to the patients and families. It was such a good feeling knowing that we were doing something so wonderful for these children and families.We were able to work with Dr. Kolb and other members of the hospital to present them with a gift. A gift of $125,000 to the Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children.
This gift is for two initiatives at the hospital.A portion of the gift will be used for a ground breaking research system that will vastly improve research capabilities at the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. Moreover, having this system in place could fundamentally change pediatric cancer research and treatment for children around the globe.The other portion of the gift will be used to pay for a pocket park/playroom on the Oncology Unit during the hospital expansion. This pocket park/playroom will be used for those individuals and families that are undergoing cancer treatment at Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children. It is a place where children and families can go to get out of their room and have a place to feel “normal.”This gift could not have been given without all the donations from our supporters, all of the people that have attended our events, all of the volunteers that have put in countless hours to make our events successful, and a group of individuals that make up our executive team. To all of you out there, I thank you for everything you have done to help our foundation and now we are able to start to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by childhood cancer. I know Gabby is proud of everything we are doing. When we walked out of the hospital the other day, Katie stopped and said, “listen.” The song Firework by Katy Perry was playing over the loud speaker at the entrance to the hospital. This is the song that we sang to our daughter and that we hear all the time and know she is watching over us.

Please keep BELIEVING that we can make a difference and help us raise more money to help other great hospitals and doctors that have a passion to make a difference.
