乳児のお母さんからの手紙  A letter from a mother of infant

(10/8/12) M4Mのドクター・アイゼンバーグに来た手紙。



A. R と家族一同

Dear Mr. Isenberg,

I just wanted to thank you for your organization’s donation of medals to the East Tennessee Buddy Walk that took place yesterday.  This was our first Buddy Walk as our daughter was born in January with Down Syndrome and a congestive heart defect.  After three weeks in the NICU at UT Hospital followed by Open Heart Surgery, surgery to give her a pacemaker, surgery to insert a feeding tube and over a month at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital doing all of this, yesterday was our BIG DAY to CELEBRATE!  It was an incredible afternoon of people coming together to recognize and encourage these precious individuals who give us an outlook on life that we otherwise probably would have missed.  Given our journey with our dear Miss M, this was truly a milestone for our family.  Thanks to your organization, we now have a keepsake that will help us to forever remember this day.  Thank you for all you do and for the many athletes who so generously donate their medals to honor our little ones.  It is truly such a gift.

With a grateful heart-

A. R, for the entire R family
Maryville, TN
