As many of our close family and friends know, I have worked for Aflac for over 5 years and yes, I am also a policyholder. When Logan was born, I added him to my Aflac policies because he was in NICU for five days and I figured I might as well add him to all of my policies now. Not thinking I would ever have to use my cancer plan for my son. But what most people don’t know is that Aflac owns their own children’s cancer and blood disorders center in Atlanta, GA., Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), in which I have been donating to monthly since I started my Aflac career.
What is incredible (and ironic, let’s be honest) is that Logan’s chemotherapy treatment plan was developed at CHOA! Working for an amazing company, being a policyholder, donating to an amazing cause and having Logan’s chemo protocol come from CHOA is an incredible experience.
So, with that said….
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta chose Logan’s story to share with the entire Aflac sales force in January 2018 at Kick-Off meetings across the country! That’s over 16,000 sales agents in the US, with over 500,000 accounts and close to 10 million policyholders. Logan’s story is going to be shared to help raise childhood cancer awareness and future funding opportunities for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).
CHOA flew their film crew and marketing team up from Atlanta last Wednesday and basically turned our house into a film studio on Thursday. It was very overwhelming and exhilarating at the same time!! They made Kevin and I feel very comfortable and helped in telling Logan’s story clearly and concisely. This in turn will not only help in raising awareness but also in funding CHOA. These children are innocent and in a lot of cases need nothing short of a miracle. They were also able to interview Logan’s doctors (Dr. Weintraub and Dr. Adamo) at the hospital (Albany Medical Center).
We can’t wait to see the final video!
We are so humbled and blessed to be able to share our story!!! To be able to share our experience with thousands of people to help raise awareness and funds…..#GRATEFUL
