State: Mesa, AZ
Facility: Cardon Children’s @ Banner Desert Medical Center
Amber has been hospitalized many times in her 15 years! She has had a total of 8 surgeries, many when she was an infant and most recent with this admission. She went through multiple procedures here including surgery, NG tubes, foley catheter, PICC line, and many IV’s. Even thought this all she still remained positive when working with Child Life. We got to learn a lot about her though conversation, encouraged her to go on walks, talked about procedures and Amber was always willing to listen and engage. Amber and her family were always very thankful for all services and have coped well for how much she had gone though.
