The Brown family has organized a race to support the conference in honor of their MTM warrior, Evan.
Regarding their experience at the 2015 conference, Kim Brown writes,
"Two years ago, we finally decided to take a trip to Chicago to attend the 4th MTM-CNM Family Conference...During the weekend, families that have only previously met online are brought face-to-face. We are also able to connect with experts in the field of MTM-CNM research. Researchers come from around the world to keep everyone up to date on the advancements in medicine. There are no words to describe the feeling of being surrounded by those who know exactly what it's like to live day to day with a medically fragile child. Not to mention what it's like for the kids, who are used to being the only one in their community or state with their disorder. Sadly, because of being ventilator dependent, children are often lost to respiratory diseases. For some kids, the experience they receive at the conference are their one and only opportunity to be around kids like them. There are kids that we met at the last conference that will not be with us this year."
When a friend from a local church offered to help host a 5K walk/run for Evan, Kim said, "
I knew exactly where I wanted the money to go."
Thanks so much for your support and investment, Brown family!! We would love to see more walks/runs supporting the MTM-CNM Family Conference.
