Celebrating our patients is one of our great joys. We celebrate in lots of ways at our hospital, with music being one of our favorites. “Hey, no more chemo” is an original song we’ve sung for years. @hairgasm‘s capture of the song + her words really moved us. We hope it touches you too. Thank you for sharing this @hairgasm and allowing us to repost.
I’ve heard this song a hundred times. Sitting in clinic with Arlie as she is getting infused and we watch someone finish their last chemo, sitting in the hospital after a relapse and watching so many children walk out those doors. Finished! All done! I cry every.single.time. I’ve always envisioned how we would feel.How we would celebrate. It has seemed like forever away for us some days. And then to have to start all over with more intense treatment. I honestly wasn’t sure if we would see the end of chemo some days. Yesterday they sang the no more chemo song and it felt so surreal. And I pray the song is true. I pray she is completely healed forever and always. Chemo is the worst but it helped kill the bad cancer cells in Arlie’s little body. All the mixed emotions today. So bittersweet ❤️

Nashville! I went over to @vumcchildren to hang with my friends this morning in Seacrest Studios. @ryanfoundation I’ve been admitted to Vanderbilt hospital here in Nashville a few times actually when I was sick on the road so I know how special and amazing the crew of caregivers here are! But I had nooo idea what a surprise I was in for when I met my friends today! I also learned how hard it is to blow up a glove like a balloon and tie it....props to anyone who can do it 😂 thanks for making my day guys. Rock on, rock loud, and rock hard. 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋 @donslens

Today we got exciting news that we will be getting our very own dedicated therapy dog in 2019 thanks to our friends at @marspetcareus! The announcement took place at our “Dog Days of Summer Paw-ty,” a dog show and pet therapy event for patients and families at Children’s Hospital 🐶

We had so much fun visiting with @harryhudson in #SeacrestStudios yesterday! Harry battled cancer just a few years ago, and now he is a @teencanceramerica ambassador, bringing so much positivity and encouragement to our patients!

Thank you to @nashvillesc’s @imcgrath9, @boluakinyode, @boushwa22, and Matt Pickens for visiting #SeacrestStudios. We loved having you and had a great time together. #OurTownOurClub

This little guy is too cute for words. 😍😍😍 Thanks @raising_wesley for the photo.

Thank you to Michael W. Smith for showing kindness to our patients and families today in #seacreststudios. We especially enjoyed the Never Have I Ever bedtime edition game and hearing you read your new children’s book, Nighty Night and Good Night. #nightynightandgoodnight

Smiles and messages like this always make us happy. “We loved meeting Christi & Layla in the infusion center. She brightened my daughters days during a rough time. ❤️” We're so thankful for all of our volunteers, like Christi Williams and the "Rehab Lab" Layla. Look for the two who have recently been featured in a national dog food TV commercial! Read our link in profile for the story.

We're sending a big congrats to @christineelectra the newly named #MissTennessee! Earlier this month, Christine helped with our Telethon alongside the former Miss Tennessee, @caty.davis. Thank you, Caty for bringing so much joy to our patients over the past year, and Christine we are so excited for the year ahead!
