The gift they’ve been given can never be repaid, Nick and Janelle Foligno said.
Thanks to surgeons and doctors at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus and Boston Children’s Hospital, Milana Foligno is a vibrant, soon-to-be 3-year-old girl with a bright future.
She squirmed and smiled Tuesday as the Folignos announced a $1 million donation — $500,000 for each hospital — during a news conference at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Having lived in Columbus for a number of years, I know of plenty of people who can attest to the amazing work that is done there for children. Having had a couple of kids in our own family spent quite a bit of time in other children’s hospitals, I can also attest that Nationwide isn’t the only children’s hospital doing amazing work. I’m glad the Folignos have a healthy daughter, and glad they are giving back to the hospitals so they can continue to do amazing things for other children.
