More than socializing and enjoying festivities – what truly makes the Dreamcatcher Society special is the members’ sense of purpose and dedication. The group brings together grateful patient families, children’s health advocates, medical professionals and other generous individuals who are committed to the health and wellbeing of Levine Children’s patients. Through annual financial commitments that boost vital patient programs, such as the Partnership for Pediatric Hearts, members have the unique opportunity to directly impact the care of Levine’s most fragile heart patients.
Attendees at the spring “friendraiser” event, held at Legion Brewing Company SouthPark, were moved by the touching testimonies of two families who formed a special bond when their sons – both named Gray – benefited from life-saving congenital heart care at Levine Children’s. This program, which saves and enhances the lives of children battling a congenital heart disease or heart disorder, relies on the support of groups like the Dreamcatcher Society to bring the latest treatment options and medical technology to patients who need it most.
A special thanks to the Carpenter and Jackson families for sharing their stories during the spring event, and to the newest members who caught the dream: Stephen and Jenny Sims; Geoffrey and Erin Shaw; Laura Shaw; James R. Herlong, MD; Sanjeev K. Gulati, MD and Tanu Gulati; Tripp and Whitney Carpenter; and Matthew and Paige Brockmann.
