September 2013 – Kelly Brda chose the Footprints program at Cardinal Glennon. Kelly wrote “Footprints is a program at SSM Cardinal Glennon Medical Center I became familiar with through a friend of mine, Heather Krieg. They were there to support Heather’s family when her sister, Holly was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. They can provide access to costly equipment and nursing services not covered by insurance and help the family to live well along their journey. They continue to support the families even through the bereavement process.
Once again, the program is helping another family friend whose grandson is missing an enzyme needed to survive. He must receive a six hour procedure every week for the rest of his life. These kinds of programs help the families deal with all the day to day things that come up with dealing with a sick child.
Heather and her parents try to pay it forward every year by sponsoring a memorial golf tournament at Acorns Golf Course in September and I feel privileged to work for a company like MetroGistics who give their employees an opportunity to donate to a special cause of their choice.”
