As many of you know Rascal Flatts holds the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt very near and dear to their hearts. Their involvement with this wonderful facility has brought awareness that many would not have experienced otherwise. Pediatric hospitals are not where parents want to be, however it is a blessing to have such advanced medical institutes that specialize in the care of children. Vanderbilt is more than a hospital, it is a beautiful, caring and somewhat whimsical home at one time or another for so many very sick children and their families.
