In this conversation, Dr. Bob talks with Ciera Granger, leader and co-founder of the Koala Corps. Koala Corps is an organization working directly with Children's Hospital LA to raise funds in order to seek out the most qualified volunteers that will hold babies when their family cannot be with them. This is a wonderful organization that is wholeheartedly committed to helping babies and families, Dr. Bob and Ciera discuss her own baby's complications years ago which led her on a wonderful mission. This is such a heartwarming episode that you won't want to miss.
Ciera Granger is a wife, mother, and leader of the Koala Corps. She is an artist and loves cooking, hosting friends and teaching barre classes. She loves being a stay-at-home mom and homemaker. Being a mom didn’t come easy for her, and she and her husband, Dan, faced overwhelming difficulties when their second daughter was born with multiple disabilities and life-threatening health issues. Ciera and Dan fought alongside Shae as she clung to life at Children’s Hospital of LA for almost six months after she was born in 2006. Their experience caring for their now thirteen-year old daughter forever changed their family, and now the Grangers want to help other families at CHLA who are going through similar painful difficulties with their children. That’s why they are dedicated to helping Children’s Hospital get the funding they need through the Koala Corps. Achieving their funding goal will ensure that every baby is held when their families cannot be there. This mission comes from their firsthand knowledge of how important and great this need is.
