“There are no words to describe the feelings I have for receiving the R Baby hero award for 2016! I believe a force greater than us has brought the Rabinowitzes and I together.

Thank you Andrew and Phyllis for everything you have done.”

“R Baby Foundation truly led the way in recognizing the need for improvements in emergency pediatric care, educating the public about it, and pushing for new innovative ways to address the issue through their grass roots efforts and fundraising. I attribute all of the growing success of The PEP Network to both the crucial funding R Baby provided to develop it, as well as the unique personal touch and bond that R Baby’s board maintains with me. Their enthusiasm, support, and belief in what I am doing, infuses me with energy and makes it easy and extremely rewarding to push forward with my work.”
