Shriners Hospitals for Children

For her Giving Back charity for the month of November, Shelly Lane chose Shriners Hospitals for Children. Shelly shared her inspiring story:

“I chose Shriners Hospital because of what I have personally experienced with one of my own daughters. The overwhelming response of generosity brought to our family in a time of much uncertainty when she was born was astonishing. Shriners gave us the knowledge, guidance and most of all hope to allow my daughter to live a full life; and that she is. She has endured numerous surgeries since birth, but despite the obstacles she was born with, Shriners gave her the ability to become an incredible athlete, something I never thought she would be able to do when she was born. She is a strong-willed, passionate young woman with a heart larger than life. She is the strongest young woman of 19 years old I’ve ever known, and is now in her second year of college. She is an inspiration to not just me, but anyone that she encounters.”
