Primary Children's Telethon

Josh and I agreed as a family to participate in the telethon happening at Primary Children's, to share our story in hopes of inspiring people to continue supporting the Primary Children's Medical Center. We will be on air between 11-12pm on Sunday May 31. I'm not asking you to watch us....really, I'm just letting you know that there is a opportunity for you to "help" if you feel so inclined. We our forever indebted to those at Primary's who not only performed life saving surgeries on Jack, but those who have helped Josh and I have a comfortable experience with our son's life threatening heart defect. Here is some information:

The access to good care is a miracle that happens throughout the year at Primary Children's Medical Center. Once a year the Utah community and KSL Channel 5 come together to celebrate those miracles during the KSL/Primary Children's
Miracle Network Telethon.

The 27th annual Primary Children's Telethon begins Saturday, May 30 at 6:30 p.m. and continues through Sunday, May 31 at 5:00 p.m. on KSL Channel 5.

Primary Children's is the only full-service pediatric hospital in the Intermountain West equipped to care for the total child. The hospital provides specialized care to each child, regardless of ability to pay. Last year, Primary Children's expended more than $13.4 million to cover more than 11,337 charity-care patient visits.

Contributions can be made during the Telethon or by mail to Primary Children's Medical Center, P.O. Box 58249, Salt Lake City, UT, 84158, or online at

Cute, cute picture of Jack.
I wasn't able to catch you on the telethon, but think it is great that you are willing to help.
Take care,
