Child Life Specialist
Inova Children's Hospital
“Miss Holly” provides psychosocial support to children and their families who receive the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis, or who are undergoing ongoing cancer treatment. Families remember how Holly made their hospital stays less scary – and even fun! Holly’s colleagues frequently hear comments from families about how wonderful Holly is, and how they couldn’t have endured their life-changing experiences without her selfless service and compassionate care. Families have demonstrated their appreciation for Holly’s extraordinary kindness through countless in-kind and cash gifts of gratitude to Inova. Through Holly, families see the invaluable aid Child Life Services offers and are moved to give so others can experience it as well.
