Welcome to My Personal Page
I am participating in the Health, Hope & Heroes 5K on June 5 to support pediatric health care programs at Loyola University Health System. Each year, thousands of families turn to Loyola to care for their sick or injured children. By joining me or making a donation to this cuase, you are helping to celebrate health, inspire hope and become a hero for Loyola's youngest patients.
Did you know...
- Loyola University Medical Center is the birthplace of the world’s smallest surviving baby. The baby was born on September 19, 2004 and weighed just 9.17 ounces.
- The overall survival rate of infants in Loyola’s NICU is 98 percent. As a level-III perinatal center, Loyola offers the latest technology, therapies and techniques to care for premature and sick infants.
- Loyola's Pediatric Mobile Health Unit was the first of its kind in the Midwest. This 13-ton, 40-foot clinic on wheels has treated more than 100,000 children throughout Chicago and its suburbs.
- Loyola's Ronald McDonald Children's Hospital opened in 1996 as a hospital within a hospital, offering a 50-bed level-III NICU, a 14-bed pediatric intensive care unit, a monitored unit for infant and toddlers and 34 general pediatic beds.
Join me today and you can be a hero, too!
Joe and I decided we wanted to support our 2nd home. Joe really looks at his hospital and their staff as his safety place. We have been here through the hardest times and their very caring staff has helped us both through the hardest chapter in our lives. Through our days at outpatient clinic, where Joe gets his weekly treatment, and the days at the hospital we have come to know many of the staff, I love to say that they ALL take to heart their slogan of taking care of the the spirit too. Joe and I have also encountered pediatric patients that are battling a harder hand, and by concentrating our efforts to help loyola we will be making a direct impact. Pedicatric cancer is so underfunded and Loyola also has a research chapter as well as leave of abscence for parents that can't take off work indefinitely to be with their sick child without causing a mayor financial impact in their family. These two things are close to Joe and my heart and that is where we would like to concetrate our efforts.
We really would love to make this an annual staple and in staying with Joe's competitive nature, of course we want to have the largest team in the race!
The Moylan Family! <3
