Kate is turning nine-years-old and we are celebrating with a fundraiser for Dell Children's Medical Center.
I hope that if you are a regular reader of this blog, and find any value, that you will donate to this cause. Even $10 makes a difference!
Nine years ago Kate was born with Sagital Synostosis, a condition that caused the bones in her head to fuse together. To fix this situation she underwent surgery to reconstruct her skull. We were fortunate, today Kate is fabulous. She is smart, funny, enjoys school and dance, and brings a smile to all who know her.
When she was born there was not a state-of-the-art medical facility for children in Austin, Texas. She was treated by wonderful doctors at Children's Hospital of San Diego. Since that time a new hospital has opened in Central Texas, and for the past four years we have supported the research efforts of these local doctors with the "Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Surgery and Research" (In 2010 we began donating to a similar fund in San Diego).
We donate part of the fees I earn as a professional speaker, and each year in February, to celebrate Kate's birthday, we host this fundraiser on my blog. Please join us by making a donation of any size.
Thom, Sara, Jackie and Kate Singer
