“Child life specialist Jenny Belke goes above and beyond every day for our patients and their families. Her tireless efforts with the planning and the organization of the Annual Holiday Event (200 plus attendance last year). Wonderful ideas likes The Holiday Store, where the parents of our patients are able to secretly shop for great gifts for their family. Jenny also trains and organizes 60 child life volunteers every year, helps with CMS tours, at least six times a year she is filmed for special media events, she also precepts four Child Life students/fellows a year, not to mention the monthly and quarterly events that are planned such as the League for Hope. I could go on and on, but most importantly she is a constant calming and caring presence at the chair side for children that endure painful procedures.”
