We are very excited to be hosting Harmony from the Heart once again this year. HFTH 2014 will be our 9th concert event raising money for The Center for Platelet Research Studies at CHB. Harmony from the Heart started as our way of thanking the many talented doctors and researchers who helped save our youngest son, Toby, after he was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, TTP, when he was only 2 years old. We know, if it hadn't been for the knowledge gained through platelet research, we may not have our bright, energetic and creative 14 year old with us today. One of the most striking statistics that is always in my mind, is that 5 years prior to Toby's diagnosis, the mortality rate for TTP was 80%. Toby was diagnosed, treated and has made a tremendous recovery. We have friends that aren't so fortunate. I am hosting a fundraiser to benefit Boston Children's Hospital because I want every kid to have the best care possible. If anyplace can make that happen, it's Boston Children's Hospital. Boston Children's has been nationally ranked as one of the best pediatric hospitals for almost two decades. Doctors manage more than 500,000 patient visits every year – and many of these kids have health problems no other hospital in the world can handle. Every day, the doctors and nurses at Boston Children's combine courage, creativity and compassion to provide life-changing care.
I hope you will consider supporting this fundraising effort and the kids at Boston Children's.
