The El Paso Children's Hospital and UMC Foundation were doing a lot of damage control yesterday after it was revealed that a porn star would be the headliner at a fundraiser for Children's Hospital. Yesterday, the porn star fired back at the harrumphers.
Nothing says a fundraiser for a children's hospital like a porn star as entertainment. In addition to worrying about an 80 million dollar debt to UMC, El Paso Children’s Hospital is now having to do damage control after it was discovered that a mattress actress was going to be the entertainment at an upcoming fundraiser.
Earlier this week, a Las Cruces boy was hurt badly when lightning struck the field where he and his football team were practicing. His family has released a statement about his condition.

The bad news is, earlier this week, University Medical Center told El Paso County Commissioners Court they needed an 8 percent property tax increase to cover a $30 million budget shortfall because El Paso Children’s Hospital can’t pay them $70 million dollars they owe UMC.
The good news is, UMC is now backpedalling and saying they won’t ask for that increase – this year. But what about next year
I was honored to tag along with our very own lil hero Hunter James at his last oncology appointment to the El Paso's Children's Hospital. The facility is amazing but more needs to be done for these amazing kids. Check out the photo gallery and keep an eye out for some exciting projects from Hunter's cause coming out soon.
