In a lifetime, most people don’t spend more than a few months in a hospital—and some can measure those stays by a handful of days, or perhaps weeks.
It’s a different situation for 6-year-old Dominic Hamilton. Over the past 2 ½ years, the Joliet boy has been a regular patient at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. Dominic has medulloblastoma, a common brain cancer in children, and endured the difficult process of chemotherapy, stem cell transplants, and proton radiation.
This is how I introduce this year’s effort by Jeanne’s Journey for Hope, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping families facing financial hardship as a result of a cancer diagnosis. Read more at the Joliet Patch, ‘Jeanne’s Journey for Hope’ Rallies Around 6-Year-old Joliet Boy.
For the past six years, it has been a humbling honor to come alongside the Kurinec family and other supporters of JJFH. Learn more at the Jeanne’s Journey for Hope website.
