Recent Media and the Hemispherectomy Foundation and Scholarship

Here are some recent news stories that have been in the papers and on the news. I can’t post them all, because they are appearing all over the U.S., but here are some good ones that have appeared over the past few weeks. There is much more to come as the CBS station in Baltimore (13) is following Jessie throughout Surgery, Rehab, and long-term. All the footage will be passed down to CBS Dallas (11/21). They are plugging the Hemispherectomy Foundation and Scholarship for us throughout the coverage.

Jessie Hall Hemispherectomy Scholarship

**Google Jessie Hall and you will get more than you can read in one day.

We are really starting to push the Hemispherectomy Foundation and Scholarship with these media outlets and it is making a difference. We have our first set of donations, and have found an attorney and accountant to help us set up the Hemispherectomy Foundation.

Keep those ideas coming. We've gotten some great ideas, like raffling off a car, getting on the Oprah Winfrey Show, getting the Texas Rangers involved, Doing an endowment concert, geting President Bush to visit Jessie, and much, much more.

Thanks for the overwhelming response. This will help so many kids.
