As a member of the Family Advisory Board, Patient Rights & Responsibilities Committee, and Patient Experience Steering Council, I advocate for expert pediatric care in our community. It became my passion when my son, Buddy, was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor at six months old, resulting in multiple disabilities.
Our multi-disciplined Children’s Mercy medical team is dedicated to enabling Buddy to live his best life and equipping our family with information and resources to maximize his potential. Children’s Mercy has our back and it’s felt in every interaction. I want all families to feel that way.
