I go down to valet parking I go to the elevator, I press main floor button I go and ask where is MICU's they say 5th floor... I am at Boston Medical Center I walk down the hall with my Dad We say, we're here to see Russell R. Morris. It's his granddaughter and son They let us in, I go to my Grampy's room I see all the things that are on him, I.V. here and there, a tube to keep him alive, he is sedated so that he doesn't feel the pain I hold his chubby hands, I take this sponge thing dip Pepsi on it, I put it on his lips, he flinches Nana has been at his side for months I talked to him I told him I would get rid of all the squirrels for him He hated squirrels in the yard The day I found out they were going to take the tubes out and see if he could live It lasted 15 minutes
When Grampy died...I had to find a way to remember him. Nana was riding in the big PMC...but I wasn't old enough. That is why I discovered the Kids PMC. It gave me something to do - it gave me something to work for. All our riders have raised over $10000.00 for Dana-Farber in 2 short years! This year I hope it's more!
