Jaycie Visits the Hospital

Jaycie Visits the Hospital

A Star among Stars, our summer intern and 2015 Star Jaycie Cohen made a quick visit to Palms West Hospital to cheer up Alexis (2017) and ran into Hailey (2017) as well!  All three Stars have lit up the red carpet at a Little Smiles Stars Ball. The unit was so bright, the nurses had to wear shades!

We love NURSES!

We love NURSES!

Little Smiles celebrated ‘Nurses Week’ at one local hospital with a yummy lunch from Chick-fil-A!

Whether its donuts, wraps and coffee at dawn, or a nice mid-day break, nurses are often so busy caring for children that they need to be reminded to eat. We are honored to do what we can for these special professionals who are helping kids heal!

Little Smiles is proud to announce it will now be serving children at the request of nurses at Martin Memorial Hospital’s pediatric unit in Stuart. We kicked off the fun with a donation of swings, bouncy seats, mobiles and more to cheer up some of their youngest patients.

We are so excited to be forming a new lead volunteer team to serve our northernmost partners which include Martin Memorial Hospital, Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Treasure Coast Hospice.

Donor Grants Wish

Donor Grants Wish

One Little Smiles donor was so touched by the story of the Rogozan family that he sent them on the trip of a lifetime! Disney World, of course.

Little Rania, who was a Little Smiles 2016 Stars Ball honoree, enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the most magical of all places for children. She has been fighting her way through Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) since her first surgery at just 8 days old, but this getaway was all about fun and family.

The whole Rogozan family is such a treasure, thank you to all who helped make this wish come true!
