Thank you Caroline for taking the plight of Richmond's Children before Congress. We still have yet to build a free-standing, full service hospital for you and all our city's children. And YOU deserve centralized, child-centered comprehensive care under one roof. Your story is one of many that highlights the need for specialized, not fragmented, healthcare for pediatric patients. You are an amazing young lady to tell our city's story with candor. I salute you! Maybe you will be one of the catalysts that brings a TRUE Children's Hospital to our city.


Way to go, Caroline! Thank you for representing CHoR and children across the Commonwealth!
