Mr. Meyer married his high school sweetheart Elaine “Hoppy” Meyer in the summer of 1983. Mr. and Mrs. Meyer have 3 son’s, Christopher, Brent and Jamie. When their youngest son Jamie was 16 months old, he was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, an immune system disease that attacked his kidneys. Over a fifteen year period, Jamie received excellent treatment from Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Jamie is now a very healthy 18 year old and has been symptom free for the past 3 years. They were very fortunate to have a world class children’s hospital in their community.
Due to their own special circumstances and because of the great care and treatment their son received from CHOC hospital, the Meyer’s have a warm spot in their hearts for CHOC. Mrs. Meyer has worked as a floor volunteer and is very active in the Jack & Jill Guild supporting CHOC.
“We will always be grateful to the staff of doctors and nurses that treated our son during his battle with his illness”.
