NEW: Teen Resource Cart at Duke Children’s Hospital

A massive thank you to the AJ Fletcher Foundation for helping build out the Teen Resource Cart at Duke Children’s Hospital! The cart carries fun supplies for teenagers receiving treatment to ensure that they have access to engaging material. The cart includes items such as books, movies, games, coloring books and art projects.

Neat, right? Read what some of the teens and staff have to say about it: 

“The gel pens and adult coloring from the teen cart helped me relax and pass the time.”    -Lea, age 18

“It is great for our teens to have a special space to choose activities that appeal to their age.” – Katelin, CCLS, Child Life Specialist, Duke Children’s  5300 Unit

“The teen cart is an awesome way for our teen patients to make choices when many things are out of their control.”   – Jess, RN, Duke Children’s 5100 Unit

“We are fortunate to have teen carts that we can utilize for teen patients on adult units.  These units often have fewer resources to normalize the environment so the rolling teen carts provide comfort to these patients.”  – Susan, Child Life Specialist, Duke Children’s (Hospital School Coordinator)

Stories like these allow us to show our community the impact that their donations can have. We aim to have a real and tangible impact on the lives of children receiving care and their families. Interested in speaking with someone to contribute? Visit our website to learn more and get in touch.

“Love can change the world in a moment”

A lot of families either start or end their day by tuning in to the news to get a pulse on current events around the globe. Most news channels will report the atrocities – whether that be violence, famine or terror. Once in a while, that bad will be interspersed with hopeful, inspiring stories. Personally, I choose to focus on those. Stories that promote, peace, happiness and support. It also happens that celebrities, most commonly music artists, are seen supporting these messages. One such story was in relation to Red Nose Day, in March 2017.  Continue reading

How Do You Handle Hearing Tough, Often Unexpected News?

Imagine this

Taking your child to their weekly baseball games and being excited that your budding baseballer is hitting the home runs, catching all the balls and being the star of the team.
