Porters Supporters, we are cautiously optimistic about two meetings we had with hospitals about Alex's Sunnyside Playroom this week. One was a conference call to continue to explore where the space would be and what would it look like at a hospital Alex was treated at. They agreed that this is a gap in care that needs to be addressed. The second was an in-person meeting with a local hospital foundation. We are hopeful our story, our difficult experience and our family of supporters will help to make something happen locally for families fighting cancer. We will continue to keep you updated on our progress. If you want to help families like us, please nominate us on the Ellen TV show to open a door to make a Sunnyside Playroom and its resources a reality.
