A Happy Birthday Sprinkled With Fairy Dust

Caring for pediatric hospice patients can be emotionally challenging, but our wonderful team of nurses, nursing assistants, chaplains, social workers and volunteers do an outstanding job. Recently we arranged for the beautiful "Princesses for a Purpose" - Tinkerbell, Belle and Cinderella - to celebrate an early birthday party for patient Amber during her stay in Hospice House.

Amber was in a bit of pain on the afternoon of her party, but. Tinkerbell gave her a magic wand and told her to wave the pain away, and gradually her frowns turned to smiles. She was given her favorite American Girl doll, received puppy kisses from one of our certified therapy dogs, and enjoyed many smiles. We hope we gave both her and her parents some happy memories.

Amber died a few days later and was buried on her 10th birthday.
