I Hate Measles: A Summer Project for Shot@Life

I am very proud of this video announcing the amazing results of my summer philanthropy project.

Over the 12 weeks of summer, I partnered with my patient families to support ShotAtLifeThis vaccine advocacy group allowed us to have a way to actively respond to the measles epidemic that affected our Kansas City community. 

In just a few weeks, we collected $6,740. That is enough to protect 1,348 children against measles, a vaccine-preventable illness. 

I am humbled by the generosity of my community while empowered by their support.

Continue this movement started in Kansas City by donating $5 for every vaccinated child in your life. Let the world know that we care about the children in our global families. 

Because I hate measles, and I think you do too.

    What a awesome idea! I’m amazed that the success you’ve had within your community to gather support and draw attention to the amazing group Shot@Life. 1,348 children are grateful as well, I’m sure. I hope that your effort continues and perhaps a follow-up video can be made when you’re able to help double this amount!!
