Cook Children’s Medical Center (Fort Worth, Texas)

Luke surprised Kizzy with her award at the annual Association of Child Life Professionals conference

after his speech about the impact she made on him during his cancer fight!

I will never forget the day I met my child life specialist Kizzy.  I was expecting a nurse or my Doctor, but when she walked in I felt like I was seeing a friend.  when Kizzy introduced herself I immediately felt a connection. and kizzy wasn’t alone, She had Ralph! on the days they visited, I forgot why I was there. They made me feel so happy. I felt like a normal kid – not a kid who was battling cancer.
