By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

DALLAS — Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center, a non-profit organization that treats sick and disabled children through chiropractic care, recently honored Parker University with the Golden Heart Award as the chiropractic institution that raised the most funds during Oklahaven’s 2012 Have-a-Heart Campaign. Each year, hundreds of chiropractic offices, chiropractic institutions, and many other advocacy groups around the world join in the Have-A-Heart Campaign to raise funds to heal children through chiropractic at Oklahaven.

“Parker’s faculty, staff, and student body have exemplified the true meaning of the golden heart,” said Dr. Bobby Doscher, president of Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center. “I appreciate your devotion to raising the greater level of consciousness to return our children to health through chiropractic and a natural drug free life style they deserve.”

Oklahaven, located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has been specializing in the treatment of neurologically disorganized children since 1962 due to the generosity of people who believe in a natural, drug-free lifestyle for children. The center is privately financed and has never received state, federal, or United Way funds.

Oklahaven specializes in the treatment of nursing difficulties, colic, ear aches, failure to thrive, developmental delays, asthma, arthritis, ADD, ADHD through the autistic spectrum, and cerebral palsy, which are just a few conditions that have been successfully treated. Many parents come to the center as their last hope.

“There are so many families that are searching for a solution to better health for their children,” said Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker University. “Oklahaven provides chiropractic care that deeply impacts and improves the lives of the children they treat. We’re honored to support their mission and assist in creating awareness of the power of chiropractic.”
