Families Fundraise to Honor and Remember

Fuschetto Hearts

Fuschettos fundraise to honor the memory of twins

To honor the memory of James and Leo, and to help other families with ill children, we have started a fundraiser for Children's Hospital and Clinics of MN.  We feel very lucky to have such an amazing medical facility in our own backyard.  Throughout our experience we have been extremely grateful for the care we received at Children's.


Irongirl, Leah Swartzbaugh, fundraises in tribute to her son.

Leah's son, Henry, had an unexpected heart surgery in March, 2012 and spent a lot of time in Children's Cardiovascular Care Center. During their stay, the family was so thankful for the little things that made the stay easier like movies in the room, toy cars to ride on, the sibling playroom and so much more. Leah is fundraising so that other families going through a difficult time can have the same resources.
