The Romanoski Family in honor of their son Louie are buying I-Pads for kids in CHOP's PICU amd PCU

Our son Louie has spent a  tremendous amount of his life in Children's Hospitals ICU (PICU) and PCU (Progressive Care Unit). Most patients in the PCU spend up to 4 months there after they are trached like we did the summer of 09. We see the need for these kids- many very sick and on ventilators like Louie who are bedridden. These kids are under strict infection precaution and cannot go into a playroom or most often unable to physically get in the playroom. Louie's unit at CHOP currently has an old vcr and tv and 2 portable DVR's to be split between over 80 rooms. I am kicking off this fundraiser to raise money to purchase I-pads and bedside televisions for Louie's favorite friends at CHOP.Certainly our family will benefit too when we visit our "home away from home". Our goal is to purchase 20 I-Pads and 4 bedside televisions plus give money for adaptive toys. As a huge way to say Happy Birthday to Louie...please donate for these kids. I will gladly  accept working IPADS also. More info on the plans for the Creative Soles Fundraiser date. I wanted to be sure to kick this off on Louie's birthday week and donate the gifts over Thanksgiving. If you would like to sponsor an event for us or post a flyer in your workplace please let me know at cherylaromanoski@yahoo.com
