October 27, 2010 — The purpose of the “Have-A-Heart” Campaign is to bring community awareness of the power of chiropractic for the children and to support Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, an internationally recognized non-profit organization.
The 2011 “Have-A-Heart” Campaign will be held during Valentine’s week, Feb. 7-14, 2011.
Dr. Bobby Doscher, president of Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, recently said, “We feel that it is vital to continue to educate the public on the chiropractic way of life. I only wish everyone could see what I see, then they would understand why our mission of bringing health and hope to the children is so important.”
Oklahaven has specialized in the treatment of neurologically disorganized children since 1962. This has been possible because of the generosity of people who believe in a natural, drug-free lifestyle for our children. That support enables Oklahaven to continue to spread the message of health for our children. The Center is privately financed and has never received state, federal, or United Way funds.
Each year, whoever raises the most money by selling colorful, paper “Have-A-Heart” hearts wins the prestigious “Golden Heart Award” — the giver of life. Dr. Howard Berg and his staff from St. Simon’s Island, Ga., have earned the “Golden Heart Award” for five consecutive years.
The 2008 and 2009 College “Golden Heart Awards” were presented to Dr. Carl Cleveland and the student body of the Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City for the second year in a row.
Encouraged by the students, Cleveland approved the first Special Needs Children’s Clinic at the college. After the award presentation, Doscher held a workshop on the campus both years with the upper class students and clinic directors.
Students watched in amazement as two miracles happened. The life force returned to the face of a 1-year-old with Downs Syndrome and he began to crawl. Another child who walked unevenly and on his tiptoes began to walk uninhibited and even skipped. This experience was so incredibly powerful that it moved the students to tears. Doscher said these changes happened so quickly because the children were under chiropractic care and just needed a little more specific adjustment.
The 2010 “Golden Heart Award” winners were Dr. Steven Loehr of the Meek Chiropractic in Springfield, Mo., and Life University in Atlanta.
