In August 2019, the Nicholas Pedone Foundation gifted $94,000 to fund a dedicated Child Life Assistant to Nicky's Nest for 2 years!  We know first hand the importance of Child Life and how special these individuals are.  They are medical professionals who work with children and families and help them cope and understand the challenges of hospitalization, illness, procedures, testing etc.  They help children understand on a child level what to expect.  They love and play with the kids to ensure they are comfortable.  They help parents and families and provide a loving environment.  These children build a relationship and comfort with the Child Life Specialist and we are honored to be able to have 1 dedicated specifically to Nicky's Nest!
