I was an Arkansas Children’s Hospital patient the majority of my childhood. I never imagined being a parent of not just one but two children now being treated there. I can’t adequately describe what it feels like to be the parent who hasn’t brushed their teeth, showered, or changed their clothes in days. There is paralyzing anxiety and fear when your child is dealing with a condition you can’t control or fix. ACH took amazing care of my son, my husband, and myself during our stay. The staff put so much of the anxiety and fear at ease. My three month old son laughed when he was stuck with a needle to have his blood drawn because the nurse was singing to him. I will probably never have the opportunity to verbally thank the nurses, doctors, and other staff that took such diligent care of Tobias. I want to give back to the place that just keeps giving. I want to be a part of taking care of people’s children. Please consider donating to my cause.
