Welcome to Jamee's Fund Raising Page
Wow!!! I am moving into my 30th year of being employeed at this place called RIC. I fully believe it is the place that puts people's healing first. We strive to be #1 and we have obtained such an honor by being known as the nation's #1 and Best Rehabilitation hospital, according to US News and World Report. This is our 26th consecutive year in receiving such honors. It is a big accomplishment, but when you have been part of such excellence for so many years- it's not hard to see why.
I am back again - I have decided to climb to the top again of the Willis (Sears Tower) to raise funds for – the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)! This past year - lots of reasons to climb. I have been blessed to increase my status from part time to full time as an Education Program Manager in the LIFE Center. This means I can reach more people and my family knows that I beam inside and out when I can help others. I continue to use my skills as an Occupational Therapist and an educataor to mentor staff, educate new patients and families about their disability and I challenge myself daily to expand my knowledge. I LOVE educating young children about their parents or sibling's disabilities or about their own disability or health situation. I educate adults too about their new life style changes that face them today. I empower them to continue to live LIFE for the moment as I have always done.
Working with an incredible comprehensive team of Educators while we make personal connections with people across the world is life altering. We educate people about their disability and assist them to find resources as they navigate through their life. I have personally reached and worked with over thousands of individuals and their families while they are challenged to learn a new life style during many weeks and months of healing. The funds raised through SkyRise Chicago 2016 will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research at RIC.
SkyRise Chicago is truly a special event to me as it allows me to raise funds for a non-for-profit hospital that is making a HUGE difference in many people's lives including mine. Thank you for any support you can give.
