"My daughter has cystic fibrosis. A Child Life Specialist came by today with a beautiful gift for her. A doll and a bunch of handmade clothes. Her whole face lit up and she instantly fell in love. Thank you so much for all the work you do for our children. You are all amazing. The doll will be loved forever."
" Thank you. You made me feel better."
The patients who receive the gifts are selected by the Child Life Specialists to match the child's needs.
"We were completely overwhelmed and in awe at the gift and all the work that went into it. We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful gift that our daughter received. She named her Ana after a favorite nurse that she had"
"Our daughter, who is a long way from home, is so happy dressing and redressing her new doll, which she has named "Suzie"! Thanks to all the marvelous women who are making so many little girls smile. During the long weeks to come, I know Suzie will be her constant companion."
