Ana Márquez-Greene

Our seventh random act of kindness for the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy was made in the memory of Ana Márquez-Greene, age 6, who was scheduled to see a heart specialist in Boston at the Children's Hospital. Her love of music and dance, hugs, dessert, and breakfast is remembered fondly by those who knew her. For Christmas, Ana's mother bought her a Kindle Fire, but she would never open it.

In Ana's memory, we donated a Kindle Fire to the Boston Children's Hospital, for a patient in the cardiac ward. It is our hope that this donation helps touch the life of a child who has many long and tiring hospital visits in their future, and that Ana's spirit of joy lives on in their ability to find comfort during their struggle.

This donation was made possible in part by the generosity of the Brushwyler family, who lost their daughter Emily at only 10 days old due to a heart defect. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the Brushwylers for helping to honor another child's memory through the unimaginable loss of their own.

  2. I am so proud of all of you for being so amazing and generous! My son spent a lot of time on that hallway and yesterday marked 5 months since he gained his wings. I know he is proud and has Ana and Emily as friends to fly with.
