COMMUNITY BENEFIT TREE INC
June 29, 2010

I heard about Community Benefit Tree through a family member. We attended a informational seminar offered by CBT on how to host a benefit. This seminar showed me that there was some light at the end of the tunnel. Our family had been in a car accident which left our youngest son paralyzed from the mid-chest down. We needed help to cover the costs of remodeling to accommodate a wheelchair and adding a bedroom to the first floor of our home. CBT had all the information and abilities to help plan a benefit and the volunteers were extremely knowledgable and helpful in sometimes life altering situations.

The Great!

CHILDRENS HOSPITAL OF WISCONSIN INC
June 29, 2010

In Sept. 2006 our family was in a car accident. Our two sons were flown by Theda Star to CHW for their injuries. Our youngest son (then 11) had broken his back and had severe trauma to his abdomen and was paralyzed from the mid-chest down. Children's Hospital staff quickly took hold of the situation with excellent care and concern. As parents we always felt well informed. Our son spent 6 weeks recovering and learning how to sit up again. His surgeons, nurses and therapists were all incredible. This was a life altering event and we couldn't have made it through without the vast knowledge of CHW staff members.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the care and heartfelt concern they showed our family during this very difficult time in our lives. Our Nurse Practioner helped us daily with questions to help us move forward with his life.
