Fire Engineer Shaun Skelton and his wife Megan understand how meaningful a new book is to hospitalized children. When their 1 1⁄2 year old daughter Sloane was hospitalized long term in 2018 while receiving treatment for Hurler’s Syndrome, she would light up when she received a new book to explore.
Since Sloane’s passing, Shaun and Megan have held book drives each year to donate new children’s books to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. The #BeKindforSloane campaign has also become an annual event to help educate people about Hurler’s Syndrome which is a rare genetic condition. Thanks to generous donations from hundreds of people, Shaun and Megan delivered more than 800 new books to Rady Children’s Hospital on December 18, each with a sticker with Sloane’s name so her legacy lasts a lifetime.
