While yesterday was a wonderful day at Lurie Children's Hospital with Cals Angels, I received some some bad news later in the day about Justin Wegner, who I had the privilege of meeting on several of my monthly visits to the oncology inpatient floor. Justin had a tremendous spirit, always smiling despite his challenges and discomfort. He was a college baseball player and had a lot of life ahead of him. Sadly, cancer took him from us yesterday. I’m honored to have met you, Justin, and grateful for the inspiration you’ve given me and so many others in whom your legacy will persist.
I also got to see my friend Olivia, who is the sweetest little girl! We had an ice cream party and she let me know how much she loves Rufio's laugh. I'll be sure to bring him next time, Olivia!
