This past July, after receiving his Master’s degree in Communications and Public Relations from Boston University, he visited Dr. Apostolos Papageorgiou (second from right), the JGH Chief of Pediatrics, with his parents, Lloyd and Judi. They thanked Dr. Papageorgiou for Evan’s care by making a donation to The Auxiliary’s Tiny Miracle Fund—co-chaired by Hela Boro, Robyn Brojde, Roz Rinzler and Lucy Wolkove—to help purchase 20 incubators for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. “We’ve been talking for a while about helping the hospital,” said Mr. Goldstein, “and when we heard about the Tiny Miracle Fund, we knew this was the time to do what we could.” During the visit, Mrs. Goldstein also showed Dr. Papageorgiou an album of Evan’s baby pictures, as well as the identification bracelet he wore in the hospital.
