Chinese food to the rescue!

Chinese food to the rescue!

Move over pizza, this chinese food brought some serious smiles! Waiting for test results can be a harrowing experience for young patients as well as hospital staff, and things were getting particularly tense for young Teyana and her family. Luckily, her nurses and Aunt MaryLynn knew just what to do! Little Smiles came to the rescue to lift the spirits of the entire floor. Our friends at the KVJ show send their best wishes to this special little girl, and we are looking forward to more smiles to come!

When nurses heard that this young man had been saving up for a Nintendo Switch, they decided to give him a BIG surprise. The day he was scheduled to leave the hospital after his very last chemotherapy treatment, they surprised him with one!  It was an outpouring of kindness he will never forget, made possible because of your support of Little Smiles. 

Our smiles go across county lines!

Our smiles go across county lines!

This young patient is traveling from one Little Smiles facility to another in order to receive a bone marrow transplant. It’s a procedure that not only requires a substantial hospital stay, but young patients are often not allowed to attend school or participate in other activities for months afterwards. This little girl’s nurses made sure to request lots of fun activities to keep her busy and smiling during the process! 

A Dollhouse for a Doll

A Dollhouse for a Doll

This little 2 year-old oncology patient LOVED playing with the dollhouse in Palm Beach Children’s hospital’s playroom during her stay. Her nurses knew that a dollhouse of her very own would be the perfect gift as she headed home after her treatment! Thank you to all the nurses who despite having many duties and a hectic schedule take time to notice the little things that create biggest smiles.
