How did you first encounter Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies? Our first experience came in 1993 when I (Brock) became a patient at the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. It was a scary time, and when there was so much uncertainty as to what my future would be, the doctors, nurses and staff at the hospital gave me and my family hope and encouragement for my future. 

Why do you choose to support the mission? There are so many reasons we choose to give back to this great organization. For almost 20 years, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies has served our family through the birth of our three children, surgeries and several admittances into the emergency department with the same hope, healing and compassion my family received so many years ago. We are blessed to be a part of this amazing organization.
