Gillette friends, families and supporters, we need your help.  It’s easy and will take 30 seconds of your time. 

But your support and the outcome has the potential to help thousands of Gillette’s patients for years to come.  

All we are hoping is that you will take a moment to contact Governor Pawlenty’s office and let him know:  

1. That you support Gillette.

2. And that you hope he will support Gillette’s inclusion in the Minnesota bonding bill.  

Click here to e-mail Governor Pawlenty.  Or simply pick up the phone.  His office can be reached by calling 651-296-3391.  Feel free to relay your message to the person taking calls there or even leave a voice mail.

Thank you for your support!


My son spent lots of time with the doctors and staff at Gillette Hospital.  He had a few surgeries and wore AFO’s to assist him in walking.  We cannot thank this wonderful hospital enough for what they did to help Joe with all of his medical concerns.

Dr. Steve Koop was instrumental in helping Joe be a normal kid and him, along with his staff, really worked wonders.

Joe has now graduated with two majors, working, and self-sufficient.  Much of this would not have happened without the great medical staff at Gillette.

Children cannot advocate for themselves, so we need to do this.  Help spread the word!
