This is my friend David Powell. I'm proud to say he's my friend because of the type of person David is.
You may have seen this picture of him at Walmart. I've seen it there, at Costco, at Publix - and each time I do, I give to the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital. It's not only because David, who is the 2019 Children's Miracle Network Champion from the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital, is my friend, but also because how he and his family give back.
Every weekend, David and his mom Sarahann Powell, even his sister Della, are somewhere doing what they can to help other kids and families by raising money for our Children's Hospital. Without the MUSC Children's Hospital, David wouldn't be here today. And his family is so grateful, they spend what seems to be every spare moment they have giving back. They don't take the hospital, and what you've given them, for granted.
And this family is not alone. So many of the moms and dads who have had children treated, or being treated, at the hospital also give back. Consider that when you're asked to give to the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital.
Thanks to the doctors and nurses there, I have a great friend in David Powell, who one day hopes to become a doctor himself. In the meantime, he continues to spend all his weekends and free time working to help other children and families. And know that he and his family appreciate anything and everything that you do to help as well.
