Keep Kids Like Ben Close to Home for Health Care “The hospital was pretty much my home away from home.” -Ben Ben’s parents were devastated when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia while in kindergarten. Making their home in Punta Gorda, Ben and his family are grateful for the lifesaving care provided by Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology Program – the only one of its kind here in Southwest Florida. Now in 5th grade, Ben plays flag football and dreams of being a football player, chef or doctor when he grows up. With your help, we can make sure other kids like Ben stay close to home to receive care. Routine and follow-up care for children is already available right now at our Pediatric Specialty Clinic in Port Charlotte. Our new Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida facility – set to open in 2017 – will set a new standard of care for our region. Please consider a gift to support these truly special kids and help them receive lifesaving and life-changing care close to home. We invite you to learn how you can be a hero to local children by contacting Keith Callaghan at 239-343-6077 or Keith.Callaghan@LeeMemorial.org 2| HARBOR STYLE
