From our appreciative audience….

"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your time, talent, and compassion.  Your gifts mean everything to Vera and our family.  You are all as beautiful as the music you make.  Because of you, we have had countless days supporting and loving Vera, something that would have otherwise been impossible.  Many of our friends and family took off work and school (some traveled hundreds of miles) to see you in concert and many more tuned in online.  "Vera's Concert" has quickly become one of the most cherished events of her community.  The past twenty months have been trying, but the love and support of family, friends, and so many strangers like you has held us up on our most difficult days. Your contribution - two years in a row - has allowed us to continue to be present and care for our daughter, and it has also given us the means to provide her with an accessible home that will continue to meet her needs as she grows. Through hundreds of hours of therapy and affection, Vera is now nearly 16 pounds (twice her size from last year!), can lift her head, is tracking, reaching, kicking and interacting, and she smiles ear-to-ear every day.  Her life is better because of you.On behalf of our family and the other members of Vera's Village, thank you for your devotion and generosity to the most vulnerable among us. Merry Christmas"
The Macel Family - Josh, Katie, Marielle, and Vera

“My family and I had such an incredible experience at your beautiful concert.  We were moved to tears at the talent, the beauty and the joy in the room. It was a gift to us to have that experience together.  We are so grateful to you for making this donation to Children’s Hospital Neuro-Oncology Unit.  It is simply amazing to know that such a significant donation is now going to CHOP in Peter’s name.“
