Why We Do What We Do!
Spent December of 2003 in Miller Children's hospital when my son had his 1st brain tumor surgery. Every day was physical therapy and occupational therapy and speech therapy, mandatory school work, nasty medications, needle pokes and IV woes - and most days Yay! a fun Discovery Arts project appropriate to a 5 year old with limited fine motor skills. Ten years out we still put on the Christmas hats he made, his art decorates our tree and we are reminded that we often had a ball in the middle of all that trauma. For a few years Miller Children's was almost a second home. Discovery Arts was a vital part of making hospital stays positive, happy experiences. One of my most precious possessions is tiny sculpture of our family made by another patient in for his chemo. My son is well and happy now - thanks to the great care he got at Miller Children's hospital and thanks to the wonderful art therapy of Discovery Arts. ~ Bobby's Mom

I became considering volunteering with a childrens clinic during the week-ends or even after college and also wanted to only perform or pay a visit to using the little ones. I would like your children for you to forget exactly where they are for a while and have a chuckle with these. It's extremely unfortunate to see such children that cannot are living an ordinary existence as they are ill.
