MeritCare Helps Parents Treasure Memories
Ismel "Smiley" and Rebecca Perez received a memory box in honor of their son Angel in October 2007. Angel, at 6-years-old, passed away after suffering from leukemia. The Perez family is thankful they received a memory box so they can preserve Angel's memory.
Funds for the boxes come from the Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Telethon, MeritCare's Bereavement Fund, and donations from families who have lost a child.
