Knowing how I would feel if one of my kids was sick enough to need a heart op and there wasn't anywhere near enough I can honestly say I believe that this is a very worthy cause. So'ton is one of the biggest cities in the country and we have the second best children's unit in the country. Makes no sense to me for it to be closed.
