After her infant son underwent surgery at Akron Children's Hospital, Terra Dragomier signed up to be a Change Bandit to show her gratitude. Below is Lucas and Terra's story.
At the age of 2 months, our sweet baby boy, Lucas, had to have surgery at Akron Children's, and naturally, as first time parents we were very frightened.
Every step of the process from registration to discharge was exceptional. The love, care, and compassion that the staff at Akron Children's has for their patients is out of this world.
They made what could have been a extremely tense situation one in which we felt supported and cared for. They treated our child and us like family.
I told my husband that if every hospital treated their patients as well as Akron Children's, we would be a healthier, happier world. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for making sure our little baby was taken well care of.
