It was a beautiful day in Charleston, South Carolina, when Sawyer’s Wish™ team arrived at the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital to meet with the child life team. The team had been eagerly looking forward to this meeting, as it was the first time they had the chance to work together and bring comfort to young patients through colorful and fun bedsheets.
Upon arrival, the Sawyer’s Wish™ team was greeted by the lovely Sussanne, who works with the child life team at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital. Sussanne is a wonderful lady with a heart for helping children in need. She welcomed the Sawyer’s Wish™ team with open arms and a warm smile.
After a brief introduction, the Sawyer’s Wish™ team presented several bedsheets to Sussanne. These sheets were designed to bring joy and comfort to the children during their hospital stay. Sussanne was thrilled to receive the colorful bedsheets and expressed her gratitude for the donation. The team explained the importance of the bed sheets and how they help lower the anxiety levels of children in the hospital. They discussed how the colorful and fun patterns can make the hospital feel more like home, and the softness of the sheets can be a source of comfort during a difficult time.
Sussanne was impressed by the impact that Sawyer’s Wish™ had on the patients in their partnered hospitals. She was eager to start distributing the bedsheets to the children in her hospital, and to see the positive effect they would have on the children’s moods and behaviors.
During the meeting, the Sawyer’s Wish™ team shared the story of how the organization was started by a young boy named Sawyer, who had been hospitalized and noticed the dull, boring sheets on his bed. Sawyer wanted to brighten up the hospital and make it a more cheerful place for children like himself. Sussanne was touched by the story and admired Sawyer’s dedication to helping others.
As the meeting was wrapping up, Sussanne introduced the Sawyer’s Wish™ team to a young patient named Jackson. Jackson was a sweet boy who had been in the hospital for a few days. He was excited to meet the Sawyer’s Wish™ team and to choose a set of bedsheets from their collection. Jackson had a passion for the popular video game Minecraft, and he was thrilled to find a set of sheets with the game’s characters printed on them. The Sawyer’s Wish™ team presented the bedsheets to Jackson, and he beamed with joy and excitement.
