"From halfway through my pregnancy, Children’s Wisconsin was our saving grace. Asher was born with a severe brain malformation and had a tough little life. We unfortunately lost him in July, but we credit Children’s Wisconsin with the 21 months we had with him.
"Until you’ve been touched by Children’s Wisconsin, it’s something that’s a ‘them’ problem. You know you’ve heard about these kids, you see them on TV, you see them in the papers but it’s not you, until it is you. And then you want everyone to know the amazing work that’s being done. We always say that it’s our least favorite place to love because you never want to be at Children’s Wisconsin but if you are the position where you need them, we are so lucky to have them in our backyard. To see the city of Milwaukee and the entire community come out and raise money and walk for our children, it means the most to us."
