Kid of the Month – Kaylen

Kid of the Month: Kaylen

Meet Kaylen: Our Kid of the Month for November! 

Spending your birthday in the hospital is never ideal, but Kaylen has remained in good spirits!

When asked about what type of birthday gift she might like, Kaylen’s mom said her daughter’s favorite thing was Chick-fil-A. So, our Chick-fil-A Mid South swag bag was perfect! The blanket and socks were especially comforting, as she prepared to spend the next 163 days at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

Last month, Kaylen finally got to go home after nearly five months in the hospital, and she celebrated with a trip to the gift shop to buy a balloon and some books. Kaylen was first chosen to be our Kid of the Month to make her birthday in the hospital a little more special, but she’s become more deserving every day she has spent in the hospital since.

Kaylen is determined, brave, and very strong. Her healthcare team can’t wait to see all that she accomplishes finally being at home with her family again.

Each month, a child life specialist at Le Bonheur picks out a child for us. We’re truly blessed to have so many special fighters in our lives.
