Thank you for supporting Child Life!

Visiting a hospital can be an overwhelming experience for children and their families. The Child Life Program at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent works to reduce the stress and anxiety that may be associated with the health care experience by meeting the developmental, psychosocial, and emotional needs of patients and families. This is made possible through donor support! 

Recently, Morgan Mitchell, one of our certified Child Life Specialists at the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, wrote a letter about her experiences with one of our patients and their family. In the letter, she described Child Life as the opportunity to provide families and babies with relief from hospital life. To read Morgan's story, click on the link below. 

Support from donors allows us to purchase items that help families bring normalcy to hospital life they wouldn't otherwise have. Child Life specialists utilize special "Medical Play" toys that help teach children about upcoming treatments and procedures, create memories and keepsakes for bereaved families, provide resources for long-term patients to help normalize hospital life, and much more. Your donation provides comfort and care for our most vulnerable patients.
