Project 1-2-3: Day 38 - What the Doctor Ordered

Note: Starting May 1st and continuing for the 123 days leading up to the start of the 2011 college football season, "Project 1-2-3" will share pictures, videos and memorable moments from the last nine years of Special Spectators game day events.

If you've been following "Project 1-2-3", you understand how important it is for seriously ill children and their families to attend Special Spectators events. But don't take our word for it. Here's what Dr. Mark Musselman, M.D, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Carle Foundation Hospital and Clinic Association said about Special Spectators.

“I can tell you, quite certainly, that the children and their families had a terrific day away from the usual cares and worries of their weeks. The diagnosis of cancer and other serious blood disorders is a devastating moment and a long journey for all concerned, and events such as Special Spectators really are important ways in which families cope with the enormous demands that are placed upon them.”
