Sometimes people see children with disabilities and feel bad or sorry for them. But a new campaign is trying to change that attitude of pity into something more positive.
Dr. Kevin Murphy is the medical director at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare clinic in Duluth. He and Becky Holst from Gillette stopped by Good Morning Northland Monday to talk about the Cure Pity campaign.
Dr. Murphy said the Cure Pity campaign is trying to help children with disabilities feel as positive as possible and have as many opportunities as possible. Many people come up to them and say they feel sorry. But Dr. Murphy and the Cure Pity campaign wants folks to focus on the opportunities the children have.
Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in Duluth will celebrate its 13th anniversary Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. The clinic is located at the Lakewalk Center at 1420 London Road.
