At AdventHealth for Children, our goal is to make the hospital experience more comfortable and help our littlest patients be as happy as they can be. In our attempt to make their stay more enjoyable, we’re celebrating Christmas in July and we need your help! This July, you can make a gift that will go directly towards providing the emotional, educational and developmental support kids need to feel more at home while in the hospital.

A stay in the hospital can be a very stressful experience, not only for a child, but to parents and family members as well. Items purchased on this Amazon Wish List will help the Child Life staff at AdventHealth for Children provide an environment of hope and healing for our pediatric patients. Give pediatric patients of all ages a Christmas in July and bring smiles to their faces.

Working with patients at AdventHealth for Children


Working as a child life specialist, I'm able to give back through play. It's by playing I'm able to build trust, teach and form relationships that our medical team otherwise wouldn't have access to. My job allows me to share uncommon compassion by making kids hospital visits a more enjoyable experience.
