Feedback: On helping parents, children in UK Children's Hospital

Hi, Linda

I am Sally Markle's daughter. I wanted to comment on the article on helping the UK children's hospital. My daughter has also been a patient there, having chemotherapy for 15 months, starting when she was 18 months old.

I wanted to let you all know that we have a ministry up and going here in Versailles to help. We've done the ground work with Child Life, the Chaplaincy and with the children's hospital administration. Through our church, St. Andrews Anglican church, we have been collecting food to help feed the families who are stuck at the hospital for days and weeks at a time.


We are planning to add toiletries, once we get this fledgling ministry going. If anyone or any church or organization down there would like to join forces, they are welcome to contact us. As our church is young and is trying to build a building right now, we need all the help we can to get this ministry going. My email is: tntpeevey@yahoo.com. My phone number is (859) 873-4675.

Also, some other tips to help local parents going through having a terminally or chronically ill child might include cutting their grass, raking leaves, doing household maintenence that they may not have time for, taking their car to be serviced and buying gas or phone cards for their use.
