Read the Press Release related to the Jim Krenn Press conference held Wednesday, March 6, 2012 at Aracri’s Greentree Inn.
Jimmy spent the week of Feb. 27 – Mar.3 with Eric Factor at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Erik is a former patient at Pittsburgh’s children’s hospital. Jimmy and Erick met over ten years ago and have remained friends and in Jimmy’s words “…he’s more like a little brother.”
In spite of seven open heart operations and many other challenges Erik always has a smile on his face and brings that same smile to everyone he comes in contact with.
If you would like to join Jimmy in his longtime support and fundraising for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh you can help a child heal and inspire others the way Erik does by donating to Children’s hospital in Honor of Eric Factor.
