A Man’s Big Heart Helps Kids

khts_givingbackA local man is teaming up with a health care clinic to help bring joy to children in neighboring hospitals.

Dan Mills, 20, heard of Prima Pediatrics’ efforts to raise money and toy donations through their campaign called “Share the Joy, Donate a Toy,” and last year raised more than $400 for the cause.

Mills asked those attending his 19th birthday to bring money rather than gifts, and then donated it to Rochelle Feldman, Prima Pediatrics medical director and family friend.

“He handed me the money and said this is for the toy drive.  I was just speechless, which is very unusual for me,” said Feldman.

As other people heard about his selfless act, they began to match his donations, eventually pooling together more than $1,000 for the children.

Together with Prima Pediatrics and the LETMESAIL Foundation, Mills is trying to raise even more than he did last year.

With the donations collected, Feldman, Mills and other volunteers will take the gifts to children in hospitals on the morning of Christmas Eve, providing small miracles to kids who have to spend the holidays in the hospital.

Mills is a sort of miracle himself, beating the odds and surviving after being born 16 weeks premature.  He now lives with Cerebral Palsy and is confined to a wheelchair, but describes himself as “specially-abled” rather than handicapped.

Prima Pediatrics is accepting donations of unwrapped toys at their office in Canyon Country, and Mills is accepting donations through his website www.danmansheart.com.
