Welcome to Stephanie's Personal Page
James was truly our blessing, our gift. We were fortunate to have him a day shy of 6 months. For 10 weeks we had no idea what was yet to come. At 10 weeks old James was diagnosised with RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and we began our journey at Golisano Children's Hospital. Every day we had James we are so grateful for-to all who helped care for him and keep him with us his short little life we are forever grateful, from the ed, radiology, techs, nurses, residents, doctors-Thank you! James spent days, months at Golisano Children's Hospital, it truly became our home, our caregivers became our family. It hasn't been just James who has frequented Golisano Children's Hospital, Julia and Jacob both have made frequent visits to the Pediatric Emergency Room at Golisano Children's Hospital, Julia for stitches twice and most recently twice within 12 hours for a concussion. Jacob to have his head glued twice as well as in the summer of 2015 for a baseball to his eye. The staff in the pediatric ed are fabulous, as was the child life specialist who talked Julia through a procedure and played a game on an ipad with her the entire time they stitched her hand. Julia never cried. Laura has been able to do her nursing peds clinical and her senior capstone project on the very floor that James was cared for on, 4-1600.
We are very appreciative of having Golisano Children's Hospital in our backyard. We hope we never have to use it again but in case we do we are glad its here. Its truly a stellar institution, a gem! We are fortunate to have Golisano Children's Hospital here in Rochester.
Please considering making a donation to Golisano Children's Hospital!!! If you are wondering where to allocate the money our suggestions would be to the new building fund, as amazing as the current hospital is, the new hospital is even more amazing, the pediatric emergency room (since my kids are frequent fliers, music therapy, or child life!!!!
Thank you for your donation!!!

This video was done by the great guys at DeBergerac Production in Perinton. They are fabulous, sensitive and have become wonderful friends. They truly did a great job in putting our story together. They actually won an award for this video, its a Telly (yes its along the lines of an Emmy!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6bReE9DzcU
