Today’s destination is Punta Arenas, Chile and Mr. Dolsen is driving in honor of passenger Lily.
Lily has been diagnosed as having Down Syndrome and she spent the first three weeks of her life in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Her mother, Kelly, tells her poignant story:
Lily spent three weeks in the NICU. I was up there twice a day, every day. I promised her every single day that I would take care of everything. All she needed to do was learn how to eat without the feeding tube and I would take care of the rest. Well…she held up her end of the bargain and I do my best to hold up mine.
You can read more of Lily’s story by visiting the Cape Horn for Kids website at http://www.capehornforkids.org, and while you’re there, click on GIVE to make a contribution in support of Children’s Village so the very programs and services that have helped, and continue to help, Lily can be sustained into the future so that they will be available to local children for generations to come.
Remember, it is the generous contributions, made by people like yourself, which sustain these programs and services at Children’s Village. Without you, they would not exist in our community.
