Parent Responds To Actions Against Blair Batson Children's Hospital



The following statement from parent Kristi Peña was sent to Walking Horse Report by the management of the Mississippi Charity Horse Show.  Ms. Peña is an advocate of the hospital and had a child who received treatment from the hospital.

"I'm so sad about this. We looked forward to this each year because our son misses out on so much due to his health. Mississippi Charity Horse Show was amazing to our children.

I've personally seen those donations go to good use as our children's hospital makes improvements daily. I've seen our children need and not have. I see our children's hospital struggle to fund everything that is needed. I'm sure it was not an easy decision to make and the hospital shouldn't even have had to make that decision. To use our children to meet FOSH's agenda angers me. I'm not for unethical treatment for animals.  There are ways to prove a point but involving our children is just dirty.

We live in times where animals are regarded with more worth than a human.

FOSH should be willing to replace the donations that are being lost so they can prove their point.
I'm not just pointing and preaching. I do my part to help our hospital. I know how hard fundraising is. That kind of money can be found somewhere else? Really?!? Have your causes. Leave our babies out of it!"
