Creating a healing environment

July 2018

On behalf of our patients, their families and our staff at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, I would like to thank you for your generous donation. Your contribution and the part you played in creating a better, brighter and more fun healing environment for our children are greatly appreciated. The sheet sets are amazing and will certainly help to offer comfort and cheer to our patients!

 

Over and over again, we hear from families that the child-friendly and the family-friendly comforts they find at Lurie Children’s are what their children remember most about being in the hospital. Without the support of generous people like you we would not be able to create this kind of family-centered environment that is so important to our patients.

 

With much gratitude,

Excited to be gifted a new set of sheets

Thank you Pagán’s family! We were at Lutheran today for treatment, and even though we didn’t have an overnight stay this time, my guy was so excited to be gifted a new set of sheets from this donation.

Marley's March

2/22/2018

This morning, while we were at the hospital getting Marley's counts checked (they look GREAT by the way), this special delivery was dropped off for us!

Thank you so much SHEETS FROM HOME for the Trolls and Mickey sheets! Marley was so excited to get them and they came just in time!

Sheets from home is an awesome organization that provides comfy sheets to kids with extended hospital stays. The sheets help brighten up the hospital room and make it feel a bit more like home while you are there. We are so grateful this organization reached out to us and can't wait to bust these out next week!

"Thanks so much... When I delivered them (the sheets) to the unit, the nurses and clinical staff were overjoyed – they loved the fun patterns and said our children who live here at the hospital are in need of sheets and socks the most.  Thank you again!

"...  Hello, I writing to say thank you! My daughter had her first Chemo treatment at Peyton Manning's Children Hospital and when we got to our room we had these really pretty ladybug sheets. It brought a smile to our faces when we seen this. It was an assurance that things were going to work out here at PMCH and that someone thought of her to bring brand new sheets. Thanks again."

Thank you so much for your gift! Our son  just beginning his battle with AT/RT and we have already spent much of September in the hospital. When they put on his new Spider-man sheets the smile on his face shined. I am including a picture of him all snuggled up to Spidy. THANK YOU!

A note from a Child Life specialist

Wanted to thank you for thinking of us. "We have had so much fun watching our children picking out bed sheets! We even saved a few for our clinic bed and the kids are loving the different character sheets in their room. WHAT A WONDERFUL PROGRAM!..."

A Thank you letter from a Child Life specialist

Boston Children's Hospital (MA)

June 4, 2014

On behalf of the oncology and ICU patients and families we would like to thank you for your incredibly generous donation of cozy sheets and blankets.  ...  I wish you were there to see smiles and looks of excitement on the faces of the patients, families, and staff as we rolled the three large carts piled high with the sheets...  Every patient was able to receive a set of sheets thanks to you.

 

In one room there was a 6 year old girl who has had a tough, lengthy admission over the past few months.  She was wearing a Princess Sophia shirt and her face lit up when she saw the sheets with Princes Sophia that were for her.  She hugged them tightly to her chest and asked her mom to put them on her bed right away!

 

Many of the families immediately put their sheets on their beds and were overjoyed that their rooms felt "more like home".  The teenagers had a ball choosing their favorite color and pattern. The NE Patriots sheet set was a huge hit and went to the biggest Pats fan :) He was over the moon!

 

Thank you for sharing your time, stories and kindness with us.  We can't express in words what this donation meant to our patients and families.  It was so special meeting you all.

"Yesterday my five year old son had his usual clinic visit to UNC for follow-up to his bone marrow transplant last fall. He had just finished building a "Platypus Car" out of Legos earlier that morning and when he saw the Perry the Platypus Sheets he just had to have them... Thanks for helping to put a smile on his face..."

YNHCH Loves SHEETS FROM HOME!


The sheets for patients of all ages are used on our Oncology & Neurology Units. Patients and parents love that the sheets make them feel at home away from home!  Staff loves being able to provide a bright and colorful place for patients to stay when going through a difficult hospital stay.

Kids of all ages LOVE that they get to choose fun sheets for their bed and families are so overwhelmed when they are told they can take the sheets home at the end of their hospitalization!

 

We are all so grateful for sheets from home and can’t thank you enough for thinking of us.
