What made me feel good was that many of the folks who came to the summer carnival at Georgetown wanted to know more about the kid who inspired it all - you!
Well done big man.

At the end of the afternoon, each child made off with a full tummy and a beach bucket of goodies, courtesy of the Hope for Henry Foundation.
"Just for today, they are allowed to eat whatever they want," said founder and executive director Laurie Strongin, Henry Strongin Goldberg's mother, who sponsored the summer carnival. "If we can bring the fun to the hospital, then they can associate this place with fun and normalcy and it will help these kids want to come get the treatment that they need."
Dr. Aziza Shad, director of pediatric hematology/oncology, said, "What Laurie Strongin and Allen have done to honor Henry's memory has brought happiness and laughter into the lives of countless children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders."
