It was such a great experience to visit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN last weekend for an Impact Squad visit. We took students from the University of Tennessee to dress up like princesses + superheroes to hand deliver hats made by our volunteers. We were able to give away 115 hats!
Also, we had a craft table where we made foam door hangers with patients to hang on their hospital room door and label with their name! We met so many amazing families and we ask that you pray for each of their journeys in the battle against pediatric cancer and other blood disorders.

We have made a recap video below to show you a little bit more of our trip and an inside look at getting ready for an Impact Squad visit! Check it out!

One last thing.
