CCT is used in a variety of emergency situations. And while a child in a life threatening situation is always a parent’s worst fear, the CCT team understands this and does it’s best to try to take the stress out of a situation, whenever they can.
One of those instances included Kaitlin Cook, who was being transported by helicopter from her hometown of Sylacauga to Children’s on Dec. 9, 2017, the day after a record-setting snowfall in and around Birmingham.
“She was not a happy camper with a significant pneumonia and respiratory distress, but our transport crew was able to get a smile out of her when they offered her the chance to throw snowballs at them just prior to loading up in the helicopter,” said Jason Peterson, RN, Children’s Critical Care Transport coordinator.
Just one of countless stories about how our CCT Team works in many different ways to treat children AND parents with the utmost care and concern.
We are now in the home stretch to reach our goal of raising the final $240,000. This will complete the task of raising $1 Million for CCT.
In just a few weeks, we will gather again to celebrate rivalries and enjoy great food, fellowship and entertainment, all in the name of promoting one of the most vital resources we have in the area, critical transport for our children.
With the help of all our area clubs and their contacts, both business and individual, we are confident this challenge will be met with success.
The time is now, to begin this last push by discussing with your club boards, club members and other personal contacts and interested parties. Sponsorships are available! There will be opportunities for your club members to volunteer to help out with the event. Rotarians from all over the state come to work and to enjoy the evening. Make sure you don’t miss out on this year’s District Wide event.
