“it has been amazing to see the reactions of the patients and families. The few we have worked with here on in-patient have really been enjoying it. The kids are so proud of the beads and it makes great conversation starters between the patient’s, families, and staff. Patient’s that maybe normally are very quiet and slow to warm up, light up when asked about the beads, beam when showing them to staff, and know exactly what each one represents. So please pass on to the artists that their hard work is making a difference!” Wendy Kellogg, CCLS, BS, CPST, Child Life Specialist at the Bronson Children's Hospital.
