For the fourth year in a row, we ask the Magic City for help. All day Wednesday the 21st, we ask for your donation for the regions only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).

This is one place you hope your child will never have to go to, but if something bad should happen and they need the help, you'll be glad that this is available to you and them right here in Billings.

I had the opportunity to tour the St. Vincent PICU last week and it was an eye-opening experience.

I had a child who an extensive stay at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. I hated being there but knew at that time there was no better place to have my child.

That's what St. Vincent PICU brings to families right here in Billings. The problem is, we cannot continue to have this in our town without donations and it takes a lot to keep a facility like this operating.

The fact is, the state of Montana does not have a child population to support this type of operation. That's why we need the donations. They are to help fund what isn't there and trust me when I say, we need this.

Please call and pledge a donation this Wednesday if you can. Every penny counts and helps saves lives of children.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for whatever you can do.
