Colin, here with his Aunt Sue and her daughter Hannah to the left along with Dena Sterns, Child Life Specialist, Peggy Janis, RN, and his father Mark visit the new Family Room.

Thank you Colin Wegner, Nichols School graduate and patient of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo who was diagnosed with a brain tumor 2 ½ years ago, along members of his family and friends who raised $10,000 used to open Colin’s Family Room in the Hematology & Oncology Unit at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

Colin with family and friends raised the funds with a bike ride and fundraiser to follow at the Nickel City Café.  Colin then chose to use these funds to create a family room for other patients and their families receiving care in the Hematology & Oncology Unit, where he has been a frequent visitor.
