Siskin Hospital announced Will Reeve as the guest speaker at the 15th annual Possibilities: Siskin Hospital Celebrates Life Beyond Disability Luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 27. The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

The Possibilities Luncheon will also feature an inspirational video that highlights a Siskin Hospital patient who has overcome disability.

This miraculous recovery story of love, courage, and perseverance shows that with hope, life can be full of possibilities.

 

Organizers said, "Will Reeve, Christopher Reeve’s son, will share his experience of living with a family member’s disability. You’ll be inspired with Will’s memories of his “Superman” father and his mother, Dana, a working mom and wife. Will’s heritage of joy and hope from these two amazing people, who he says gave him a “normal” childhood, drives him to continue their legacy through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation."

 

A dedicated steering committee, led by Dr. and Mrs. John Boxell, is working with Siskin Hospital staff to help coordinate the luncheon. The Possibilities Luncheon is Siskin Hospital’s only community-wide fundraising event. The proceeds provide needed services for patients without adequate insurance to cover the cost of their care. Siskin Hospital would like to thank Unum for its continued support as the Premier Event Sponsor of the Possibilities Luncheon for 15 years. Additional thanks go to Brewer Media as the Primary Broadcast Sponsor and the Chattanooga Times Free Press as the Principal Press Sponsor.


Individual tickets to the event are $75. Platinum sponsorship tables of eight are available for $3,000; Crystal sponsorship tables of eight for $2,000 and Patron sponsorship tables of eight for $1,500.

Roy Exum: USA Today Is Wrong

After spending half of a century in the newspaper business, you will find it universal that one’s “personal ethics” demand you leave children off the news page. You don’t interview an 11-year-old who just watched her house burn down and now can’t find her kitty. You don’t take a kid’s picture at his daddy’s trial and, more than anything, never publish a word that would cause a child ... (click for more)
