Carrie Siemek and her husband, Dan Siemek, are the proud parents of Emily, 15, Audrey, 13, and Natalie, who would be 11 years old now. Natalie was born with a congenital heart defect and died in 2007 at 15 months old. Her family keeps her memory alive by donating toys and visiting patients at Advocate Children’s Hospital Oak Lawn twice a year; on March 4, 2017, the family will donate to the hospital three new Wunderwagons, toy wagons specially made to give children a safe and familiar means of transportation within a hospital. The whimsical animal-shaped wagons feature a special trailer that allows a wheeled IV pole to be safely transported behind the wagon.
