Rachel’s Service with Pediatric Patients

Every week, I work with pediatric cancer patients for 2 hours. I am interested in pediatric health care, so this service, as all volunteering should be, is particularly interesting and meaningful. My shift unfortunately has many sleeping patients, so I often times help by decorating the play rooms or by getting coloring books for patients who are hanging out with their parents. However, when a patient is well enough or up to playing, the energy is fantastic. The hospital’s motto is that all employees and volunteers have the privilege to know the patients, and I feel this whenever I work or play with a patient. Even the smallest conversations brighten my day.
