Every year we're asked "How can you do it? How can you sit thru all of the stories, and cry so much, for 3 days?"
It's a question that's hard to answer. It's hard to put into words the reasons why. UNMCH does so much to help each and every child that is treated there. Regardless of race or social class. It's the ONLY Level One Trauma Center in the entire state of New Mexico. It's a teaching hospital.
But those aren't the reasons. One look into the eyes of a child being treated at UNMCH, and you understand immediately. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. And it's especially true when all you can see are a child's eyes when they're wearing a mask to protect them from infection. I can honestly say that in 100% of the kids we've met, you see a fighting spirit in their eyes. A determination to meet their affliction head on.
And to get better.
These are kids. They should be playing with their friends. They should be going to school. They should be able to sleep in their own beds. And instead they're fighting for their lives.
