My 7 year old is at the age where he loves playing sports, especially soccer. It’s so fun to see him active and having fun. But as a mom, I worry about him getting hurt while playing.

I see news reports where professional football players have life-altering health concerns because of concussions. I watched officials during the recent World Cup soccer championship playoffs allow a player with a concussion back on the field. News reports said later he couldn’t remember winning the game.

In 1999, Ed and Sara Wilkins and their family spent days living in a conference room at then-University Medical Center, the area’s only Level 1 trauma center at the time. The space was close to Sam’s intensive care room – their son – just 27 and severely injured in a terrible traffic accident.

Miles from their home, the Wilkins wouldn’t leave the hospital in case something happened. Though Sam received the best care possible, after 30 plus days of fighting for his life, he lost his battle.

We had an unprecedented visit from the Leon S. Peters Board last week.  Nearly all the members of the board spent three hours of their time touring Community Regional. Jan Paul and I co-hosted. The intent was to physically show them how their philanthropic dollars are making an impact and give them a glimpse of some things we are looking to do next. They were totally engaged and thoroughly impressed the entire time.
