Who helps to calm and distract a child while a nurse puts in an IV? Who supports the divorced parents who love their dying child but can barely speak? Who helps a young patient understand their diagnosis while providing a support system and emotional development skills?

At Beacon, we have an expert Child Life and Creative Services team dedicated to easing the fear and anxiety of our children and their caregivers. They explain procedures in a way children understand and stay with them during times of critical treatment. When children are unable to speak or articulate how they feel, our Child Life team teaches them how to express themselves in nonverbal ways.

We believe someone should be there for families during their most challenging times. Because of donors like you, we can offer Child Life, Art Therapy, Music Therapy and other services to families, as these services are not covered by insurance.  Partners will be recognized in the Child Life office, on social media and Beacon’s website. Volunteer opportunities and tours of the children’s hospital can also be arranged for you and your team.
