My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CHILDRENS HOSPITAL OF WISCONSIN INC, Milwaukee, WI, USA
In November 2006, I was diagnosed with form of childhood bone cancer at age 19. I was immediately recommended to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and was able to speak to a specialist instead with in 12 hours of having my first x-ray. Three days later Rob started 10 months of chemotherapy treatment that required him to spend over 100 days in the hospital. I had his treatments at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and had a vigorous schedule that required him to remain inpatient for weeks at a time. Along with chemotherapy, I had 3 major reconstructive surgeries to remove the tumor in his right wrist. One of the procedures required the removal of his left fibula, muscle tissue, and some skin from his leg to replace the bone and tissue that had been removed from his right forearm. Since then I had a surgery in May to repair a complication with one of the tendons. The surgery was a success and I has been doing well ever since. I will be in his 3rd year of remission this June! As a survivor, I don't think that I could have made it through the treatment if it wasn't for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the service. I honestly felt like I was at home throughout my entire treatment.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
amazing, caring and thoughtful.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
become the #1 Children's Hospital in the United States.
