We need your help. Please take five minutes to contact the Governor and your state legislators regarding the Children’s Memorial Hospital State Capital request by April 30th.

Governor Quinn and the Illinois General Assembly are in the process of developing a capital bill. As you may know, Children’s Memorial has asked the State to contribute $14.4 million to funding the construction of a neonatal intensive care unit in its new hospital, the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. We respectfully request you to contact your State Representative, your State Senator and the Governor to urge them to include Children’s Memorial’s $14.4 million request in the final capital bill before Thursday, April 30.

Please note that we request you click on each link in order to reach both of your representatives and the Governor.

To email your Representative and Senator, please click on the following link – http://capwiz.com/childrensmemorial/issues/alert/?alertid=13227351&type=TA.

To email Governor Quinn click on the following link – http://capwiz.com/childrensmemorial/issues/alert/?alertid=13227491&type=SW.

This will only take 5 minutes of your time. The wondeful folks at the Children’s Memorial Foundation have prepared draft letters and ask you to personalize your message if possible.
