5th Annual Fundraiser for Dell Children's Hospital

To celebrate Kate's 10th Birthday we are again hosting a fundraiser for the Cranio-Facial doctors at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin.

Kate was born with Sagital Synostosis, a condition that caused the bones in her head to fuse together. To correct this situation she underwent surgery to reconstruct her skull at age six-months.

We were fortunate, today Kate is fabulous. She is smart, funny, enjoys school, 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 Rady Children's Hospital of San Diego. Since that time a new hospital has opened in Central Texas, and for the past five 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 on Kate's birthday we host this fundraiser. Please join us by making a donation of any size. 

Thank you, 

The Singer Family:  
(Thom, Sara, Jackie and Kate)

Update:  We raised 25% of the goal in the first 48 hours of February.  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!!
