I finally got Lennox and Zoë’s memorial fund set up. I’ve put all the information over on Sweet Zoë.* All money donated will go towards neonatal research at Cook Children’s Hospital. We weren’t patients there, but it is right across the street from where we were and I believe the NICU we were in uses a great many of the resources at Cook. At any rate, the research done there will someday help preemies everywhere and if even a tiny bit of that occurs because of Lennox and Zoë…
I’m still working on blood donations outside the North Texas region. I hope to have that worked out soon. However, if the Red Cross doesn’t offer anything like that and you wish to donate blood in their memory, please! go ahead! If you let me know you did so, I’d be honored to list your name/screen name on Zoë’s blog.
Shannon and I want you all to know that we appreciate any donation, whether through the options we’ve selected or one of your own choosing. To know that some good is being done in this world on their behalf and in their memory doesn’t erase the pain, but it does bring us comfort and some taste of happiness. They would have been raised to seek out opportunities to help others and to make a difference in the world, however small, so it is nice to know that they do that even now.
