FC: Honoring Dr. Redmond Burke

1: Angel's Pediatric Heart House 4th Annual | Sponsored by | April 6, 2013

3: A Salute To Our Honoree Dr. Redmond Burke For your dedication, compassion and for saving precious lives | Dr. Redmond Burke "Healing Hearts" 2013 Honoree

4: Nathaniel Thomas "Heart of a Champion" 2013 Honoree

6: Dear Dr. Burke, Every day we look at our son and think how lucky we are. We think about his fight for life to be a part of our family. We are so fortunate and grateful he was given that chance. We couldn’t imagine missing him grow, kissing us goodnight, or hearing his amazing laugh. Thank you Dr. Burke, for making Nate’s life possible. We look forward to watching his dreams come true! Gratefully yours, The Thomas Family

8: Dear Dr. Burke, Thank you for devoting your life to mending our children's hearts. Your decision to cultivate your God-given gifts and use them toward such a noble vocation is extraordinary. Though many of your sacrifices, and certainly those of your family, may not be known by us; we are eternally grateful. The best way we know to truly honor you is to raise James to live his life with the same nobility of purpose. May he honor God with all he's been given and spend his days at endeavors far greater than service to himself. Our continued prayers are offered for your family and your work. May this book be a beacon to you on the dark days and an added wind at your back on the days of smooth sailing. May you hold us all in your heart and know that your willingness to be your best and to honor God with your life will carry your legacy through generations to come. We have indeed come to love you during the past five years and look forward to cheering you on for many more years to come. Reese, Kelly, James and Liam Robinson

13: “When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.” – Helen Keller Dr. Burke, Words cannot capture the gratitude we feel towards you and the life changing work you do.

God bless you, your family, and all the things you do. With gratitude, Beth & Greg McGowan Glynis, Meredith, Gregory and Dillon | Dillon McGowan

23: Dr. Burke, Words cannot express our gratitude for what you do for the smallest of heart patients like our sweet baby boy, Brendan. He was diagnosed with transposition of the great arteries before birth and we were overwhelmed with questions. Our search for answers lead us to Miami Children's Hospital and as soon as we sat down to hear your philosophy and team's medical statistics, we knew we were in the right place. Your positive energy, enthusiasm, and compassion gave us the hope and confidence we needed. We searched no further and when Brendan was born he was transported to MCH. Brendan had open heart surgery at just two days old and 11 days later we were already bringing our baby boy home. Today, Brendan is a very happy, healthy and spirited 21 month old. We will forever be grateful for the gift you gave Brendan, our family and so many other families like us! Warmest regards, Spencer, Kate, Cameron and Brendan

25: Little did Ari know how much he owed that man who came to visit him while recovering from surgery. We knew and will always know. Thank you Dr. Burke for allowing us to have Ari in our lives as a healthy 8 year old boy | Ari Rubinsztain | Sam, Sylvia, Karen and Ari Rubinsztain

26: Dear Dr. Burke, We are grateful to you and your outstanding, compassionate staff at Miami Children's Hospital. After our son Lance's surgery, you told us "God has a special place in heaven for parents like you". Well, we want to convey that God most definitely has a special place for you, your family, and each person who was so kind to our family. Keep up the amazing work and necessary progress. In gratitude, Lance Konoa (Roese) Friedman's Family Susan, Jeff and Connor | Conner

27: Lance (In Memory of) | Connor (Lance's Twin)

28: Emilio Cruz Martinez

29: Dr. Burke, In 2008, at 11 days old, Emilio was diagnosed with Infracardiac TAPVR. He was in a fragile state when you entered into our lives. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for saving Emilio's life and giving him the opportunity to live a healthy, normal life. May God bless you and continue to work through you to create miracles. Forever indebted to you, Emilio Cruz Martinez & Family
