By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Another reason to love the Cubs!
I just found another reason love our Chicago Cubs!! I was on a website called Two Little Monkeys. It was started by a family with a child that has an OBPI (Obstetrical Brachial Plexus Injury). Their child was treated at Shriner's in Philadelphia and they were so grateful that decided to find ways to raise money for Shriner's. They also find ways to educate people about OBPI's. I was reading about their annual fundraiser and on the page that listed the contributors for the silent auction the Cubbies were listed. The silent auction raised $10,000 for Shriner's. It made me feel very proud that the Cubs were a part of that and I just thought I would share.
