This wonderful team of caregivers are responsible for helping to bring back Leah's grin! Front & center is Ashley Cross, Child Life Specialist. She is surrounded by the phenomenal team of caring pediatric specialists at Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary in Boston, who cared for Leah in December after her facial reanimation surgery by Dr. Hadlock.
Ashley writes to Leah & family, "I wanted to share with you a fabulous picture we had taken of our staff sporting the awesome T-Shirts you kindly delivered to us. We cannot thank you enough for thinking of us and showing your appreciation for your care here on the Pediatric Floor. Leah, you are truly amazing. You have the best personality and admirable strength. We loved caring for you here and took a lot away learning from you and your family. We think of you often and appreciate all the updates. You have the biggest fans here. These T-Shirts make us smile as we think of you and your family."
Ashley & team- "Back at you!" - You have some devoted and appreciative fans here in Western New York too! ...And many of us ordered and wear our "Smile" t-shirts proudly in appreciation for all you do for Leah and other NF2 & facial paralysis patients seeking to regain their smiles.
Keep up the awesome and very important work you do!
