On May 23, 2017, CCAI co-founders Lily Nie and Joshua Zhong had the pleasure of attending a beautiful evening at Children’s Hospital Colorado in celebration of the investiture of the Meg F. Rady and Family Chair in Congenital Cardiac Surgery, Paul and Katy Rady’s generous gift to fund an endowed chair held by long-time friend and Board Member of CCAI, pediatric heart surgeon, Max Mitchell.
The Rady Family has adopted four beautiful girls through CCAI and are also dear friends. Meg Rady is their youngest and was the star of the night, along with Max Mitchell!
Dr. Max Mitchell has performed countless life-saving surgeries for children in need and traveled with his team to China in March 2001, 2002, and 2003 with CCAI’s first Medical Missions to perform vital surgeries for the children of CCAI’s inaugural Lily Orphan Care Center in Hangzhou, China.
“For the last nearly-two decades, Dr. Mitchell has supported and guided hundreds of CCAI families in making trusted and educated medical decisions for their children, before and after adoption. It was an absolute joy to see our great friend honored with such a wonderful gift from the Rady Family.,” said Joshua and Lily.
Congratulations, Dr. Max Mitchell!
