    Seems we're both fortunate, I live within a couple miles of this one, wish every ill child in the world had a place like this
    Sorry off track, but I can't rave enough about LCPH and how they treat children, they have daily fun programs to entertain children
    play centers, daily live shows with deferent entertainers this place is incredible and staffed like no place I've ever seen

    I just wish I could hug and kiss my 6-year old niece right now and tell her that I love her. How terribly sad. :(

    Heartbreaking, and frightening. You can't rush your child to the doctor for every tiny thing but you have no way of knowing if something like this will happen. My heart goes out to her family and I applaud them for allowing her organs to go to save five other lives.

    She posted that because the article mentioned the vaccine. Why in the world would you disagree with someone posting that they didn't know the vaccine existed?
