Alicia Robinson Unlike some girls her age who want to be ballerinas or get ponies, Serena Miller prefers snakes and karate. Serena, who is 11, is learning karate now, even though she was born with a retinal problem that left her blind. Her classes are at Children's Hospital of Orange County, and her teacher is Wayne Centra, a Newport Beach occupational therapist who uses martial arts to help children kick the lethargy caused by chemotherapy or fight for the muscle control that's slipping due to an illness or disability.

Lolita Harper COSTA MESA -- Jumping the gun a little for traditional proclamations, the Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday proclaimed September to be Child Awareness Month in recognition of the monthlong children's festival hosted by South Coast Plaza and Children's Hospital of Orange County. Supervisor Tom Wilson, who serves the 5th District, asked his colleagues to consider a premature proclamation to assist South Coast Plaza and the hospital in promoting the Festival of Children at the shopping venue.

For years, we in the newsroom have been left to watch the CHOC follies from afar. Conducted at the El Toro Marine base for its first few years of existence, the annual fund-raiser for the Children's Hospital of Orange County was well out of our coverage area. So I was happy to see that change this year as the follies moved to Costa Mesa into a tent across from the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Readers may have noticed that we have unleashed our reporters on this worthy event.

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian medical staff and administration have been discussing the future of the hospital's pediatric inpatient services, with the possibility of bringing a specialist from the Children's Hospital of Orange County, enhancing the relationship the two hospitals have had for years, President Dr. Richard Afable said. Some local pediatricians are afraid the hospital's emergence as an advanced specialty center will further diminish the use of the hospital's eight-bed pediatric unit for inpatient services, which is only used 50% of the time, Afable said.

When he's not working as a paramedic for the Orange County Fire Authority, Steve Islava invents devices that prevent physical and emotional injuries. Twenty-five years ago, after delivering a Spanish speaker's baby, he created a handbook of crucial Spanish phrases for English-speaking EMTs and firefighters. Then came an easy-to-use ladder used for escaping a fire-engulfed home. And there was also an inflatable splint. But with his latest creation - a neon-orange toy named Laffy Laffalot - the Newport Beach resident is using a portion of the sales to raise money for cancer research.

Ten years ago, Huntington Beach resident Temre Vouga’s 5-day-old grandchild underwent heart surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. She was just one of the estimated 200,000 children who step, are carried or wheeled through its doors every year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. This undertaking by CHOC, a nonprofit, comes courtesy of a variety of fundraisers, partnerships and community support. One of the county’s favorite fundraisers for the organization, the CHOC Follies, is celebrating its 13th anniversary this year with its campy, uproarious production of “The Wizard of OC.” Vouga is celebrating her 10th anniversary as a performer in the annual revue, following those harrowing days that her first grandchild spent in the hospital.

Submitted by Theresa Hartsell  For more than 40 years, Orange County parents have counted on Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). As a non-profit hospital, CHOC relies on community support to provide leading-edge care for infants, children and adolescents close to home. Corporate Video & Film owner and CEO Greg DePetro felt so passionate about the cause, he volunteered his production and post production company’s time to video tape and edit the CHOC Follies production at a fraction of his cost.

When Riley Meunier was 6 months old, Children’s Hospital of Orange County diagnosed him with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, an immunodeficiency disease. Only a bone marrow transplant cures it. Fortunately for Riley, his sister, Sydney, only a year older than him, was a perfect donor match. “She literally is what saved his life,” said Amy Meunier, Riley and Sydney’s mom and a teacher at TeWinkle Middle School. Last year, Sydney cured her little brother’s illness.

FOR THE RECORD: In the below article, Jeffrey John Bitetti and the Jeffrey John Band were incorrectly identified. ------------------- Mary Lynn Gaddis bargained with God. Gaddis spent 13 sleepless nights at Children?s Hospital of Orange County in August 2004, watching her 18-month-old daughter, Zoey, fight for her life. She had lots of time to think, she said, and no matter who your God might be, in that situation, you bargain. She prayed, asked and promised.
