A good person named Pat Huber sent this the Hlog’s way recently.
Jenna Waters of Ainsworth, Iowa is 4 years old and was diagnosed with embryonal hepatoblastoma in January. She is taking chemotherapy at the University Hospitals in Iowa City. She is the child of Jared and Christina Waters.
Here’s what Pat wrote:
Hawkeye athletes do this all the time at that hospital, as do college athletes around the country. We seldom hear about it, and it’s probably just as well. It’s supposed to be about the act, not drawing attention to the act.
I’m putting this here because this was nothing the university or its athletic department staged or promoted. And, because this came to me from someone touched by the players’ visit to the child.
Speaking of which, donations are being accepted at any Hills Bank for the Jenna Waters Benefit Fund.
