12 years ago, Gale Rosenberg, President of Rock ‘n Retail, LLC Music Marketing Company, recognized a simple need at Children's Hospital Los Angeles for CD's and DVD's.
"I became involved with Children's Hospital when my niece, Paige, was just 20 months old. She was experiencing ataxia and 'dancing eyes.' Her symptoms went undiagnosed at various hospitals. Once she was lucky enough to get a bed at Children's Hospital in L.A., she was immediately properly diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastomas comprise 15% of cancer deaths in children and generally manifest in children under the age of two. She was rushed into surgery, and her prognosis for survival was not good. The doctors said that if she did survive, her future would be compromised. They removed 16 lymph nodes and one adrenal gland.
Paige is truly a miracle; she just turned 14 years old, she is only one of a few children who have been off all medications for many years and she leads a completely normal, wonderful life.
While spending so many hours at the hospital I spoke with many young cancer patients, some that had not left the hospital in several years. Most all of them had personal CD players that had been donated, but they had only one or two CDs to idle away the time. Now, some of the rooms have DVD players in them as well." states Gale Rosenberg, President of Rock ‘n Retail.
Over the years, Rock ‘n Retail, LLC Music Marketing Company has collected over $100,000 worth of donated CDs and DVDs for Children's Hospital. This holiday season, with your generosity, Rock ‘n Retail, LLC Music Marketing Company hopes to make this year's drive their best year ever.
Donation Deadline -
Donations Must be Received by Friday, December 17, 2010
In previous years, the Hospital's Holiday donation drive provided for patient Christmas gifts only; with other donation drives throughout the year providing gifts for other than the Holiday Season. With donations having dropped off significantly over the last few years, Children's Hospital now uses the Holiday donations for patient gifts year round.
With your help, Rock ‘n Retail, LLC Music Marketing Company will be collecting donations to distribute to the patients at Children's Hospital.
