So many of you have heard Heather Hamilton's story. She truly is an inspiration to all of us. On March 2nd 2011, she lost her son Zack, who was three at the time to a genetic disorder, and heart defect.
Through social media we followed her story and emotions while going in and out of the hospital with Zack. We all felt like we knew Heather and her wonderful family. Her husband, and two other sons,( Zack had a twin). It was heart breaking to hear about Zack, and at the same time tears of happiness from everyone showing their support.
I finally got to meet Heather last fall at one of her great fundraisers for Zack. What a wonderful woman! Heather started fundraising for Zack, when she was contacted by nurses at the York Central hospital. They were going to be renovating rooms in the hospital, and wanted one dedicated to Zack !! What a wonderful idea, The room is coming along great through Heather's efforts. The room is "Elmo" themed, Zack's fav. and through fundraising was been able to supply so much for the room, even special beds.Now to help the room progress, I am asking for your help.
On March 18th, 2012, an exclusive screening of "Being Elmo, A Puppeteer's Journey" event is being held, as a fundraiser for Zack's dream room. I know my friends and readers are not all in the Toronto area, but there are options to help.
