Many of you know that I think the world of Children’s Mercy Hospital. My niece has been a patient there many times so when I was asked to help with a fundraising project for their new cardiac unit I could not have been more excited.  The images that I took for that project I turned into a book which you can see on my web site The book called “The Gift Of Life” recently won a Fujifilm Masterpiece award and will also travel word wide with the PPA loan collection.   The images that you see here are from a second surgery that I photographed at Children’s Mercy Hospital.  I will be making another book that will be given to  the Down Syndrome Guild to help families understand what their child might go though during open heart surgery.

I hope that as you look at these images you will be able to see how incredible the Doctors and Nurses and Staff are. Every time that I am there I am so blessed by their skill and  genuine care and concern for every child.

A special Thank You to Bonnie! You are Awesome!  You made sure that I was in the right place at the right time to capture these special images.
