You already know that I am/was an ambassador for Dayton Childrens hospital, but you don't know ALL the wonderful people that I have gotten to meet!! Some of them include: Dierks Bentley, Vicki G., Duke H., Beth! Also I have met Nancy and Steve from K99.1! To them I'm Glitter Girl, because I wear lots of glitter. I have also got to meet Debbie Butner and Linda VonMorh. They have always helped us when we are lost, getting to a hospital event, and they have always been there for us!

Hello again!! I was just wanting to explain to you how great the care was that I got in the hospital. While I was in the hospital they treated me like royalty you could say! They would come to me when I needed something, they would comfort me in times of need, and they would explain things when I didn't get it. They treated me like the hospital was my second home! When I was at Dayton Childrens I would always tell my mom that I wanted to rent out the playroom and have my birthday party there! That would be my dream is to have my birthday at Dayton Childrens and give all the presents to the kids in need! This year at the Dance marathon at U.D I am going to have a whole hour for Justice's birthday party! I am so excited to go and have my birthday party at an event that raises money for Childrens hospital!!:)
Hello! My name is Justice Thomas, and I am 13 years old. My favorite hobbies are dancing, cheerleading, acting, and writing to my pen-pal. I have been in and out of the hospital since I was born. When I was born I was premature weighing only 2 lbs. 3 oz. and had a dozen ulcers and a blood clot in my stomach. There was many times in my life that I have been in Dayton Childrens due to many illnesses and ulcers. In 2006 I was readmitted into the hospital for 5 1/2 weeks, I was admitted for bleeding ulcers and 2 major bowel ubstructions. The hospital gave me amazing care and comfort! Two years later I am healthy again and looking forward to going to Washington D.C!!

Meet Justice Thomas

Justice Thomas, 13, has suffered from hematemesis – an illness that causes her to throw up blood – since she was born, but her life has been drastically improved through her experiences and treatments provided by her local children’s hospital, The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton.

Justice Thomas and her family will travel to Washington, D.C. on June 18 and June 19 to speak with federal lawmakers about an issue of vital importance to them – the fate of children’s health care and the essential role that children’s hospitals play in the community.

The Thomas family will join patients and families from children’s hospitals across the country to advocate on behalf of their hospitals as part of the fourth annual National Association of Children’s Hospitals Family Advocacy Day.

Follow Justice and her family as they make this very important journey.
