Helping Hearts

What child can’t use a bit of “home” with them at the hospital? In an ICU, each room is filled with beeping machines, a sterile environment, and little comfort. The Helping Hearts program will provide homemade pillows to patients in the pediatric ICU. The goal of this program is to provide each patient with a gift that will brighten their day.

During her hospital stays, Katie’s toys were often used by nurses to prop up her ET tube or to keep an IV wire in place. The Helping Hearts pillow can serve as the designated “prop” for medical staff that frequently needs a toy to arrange a patient with extensive support. Learn how you can help Kisses from Katie make these pillows.
