Help us make our reunion video!

The story of our Center is really all of your stories combined. In this year’s reunion video, we are telling the “Story of our Center” — and we need your help to tell that story!

If you’re interested in participating, please send us the following:

  1. A photo of you while you were pregnant with your child who was treated here AND
  2. A video or photo of your child today that tells his or her unique story. It can be anything! Capture their favorite activity, a special event or milestone, or something simple like just hanging out with family or laughing at something silly. We want to capture how far your child has come, what makes their experience unique.

Everyone who comes to our Center has something in common, but you all have unique experiences, and we want to know your story! Collectively, the experience of every individual family is an important chapter in the story of the Center.

Video guidelines


Videos and photos can be emailed to Jen Rizzio. Deadline for submission is June 7.

Photos for our collage

We're also looking for photos to include in a memory collage we create each year to represent all of the children treated at the Center. Please send a digital photo (Jpeg or tif format) of your child to Jen Rizzio by June 7. Be sure to include your child's name and diagnosis in the email.
