She and husband Luke began with a grass-roots effort soliciting help from family and friends, today it is a registered charity, named for their son’s favorite toy, that provides anything from toys and clothing, to gear for the patients and families being treated at Nemours. Julie explains the value of Child Life programming, it’s more than entertainment and diversion for young patients, it helps with rehabilitation and communication between patient and caregiver. Leah described her experiences with Child Life that continues today with her older daughter Schuyler who also has the heart condition. She and her little sister Sadie are already helping with Frogs for Life.
