Gas Gift Cards Given

May 2012 – Aidan’s Red Envelope Foundation gives a $1000 grant to the Pediatric Pulmonology department at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Ms. Sheila Kun, a nurse at CHLA for 36 years, applied for a grant requesting gas gift cards for her many ill patients who have difficulty making clinic appointments due to the escalating gas prices.

Many of the patients in her clinic have complex lung disease, are in wheelchairs, have tracheostomies, and need ventilators and oxygen. For many of these patients, seeing their doctors and staying healthy became more and more of a challenge due to transportation difficulties and high gas prices. Ms. Kun’s consideration and compassion for her patients is truly immeasurable. AREF granted her application and awarded her with $1000 worth of pre-paid gas gift cards to distribute to her patients.
