One of our most cherished efforts that we support is the Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The new hospital is now open under the name ANN & ROBERT H. LURIE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF CHICAGO and our good friends Alex and Diane White recently visited the new facility. Diane shared the visit by sending us these pictures. The location is 225 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.
If you visit you will be able to see the memorial contribution plaque honoring Chris on the 12th floor as part of the Gifts of Love memorial. You can also ask about the musical therapy program and maybe even get to see the "gathering drum" that was purchased in Christopher's memory.
If you make it - take pictures for us and we will post them!
Here are a few pictures from the new hospital taken by Diane White with help from her Daughter Alex
