Haven received the cutest little duck from the ASCEND Foundation. His name is Gabe Chemo Duck.
About Chemo Duck
Chemo Duck is a multi-purpose stuffed animal. He is a 12” stuffed Duck who comes dressed in hospital pajamas and a bandana wrapped around his head. Safely secured on his chest is a bandage with either a central line or a port (the vehicle used to take chemotherapy directly in the blood stream). On his arm he wears an arm immobilizer sometimes called a “No-No”. The arm immobilizer protects peripheral IVs, and discourages children from bending the arm to pull at bandages etc.
I received this note this morning and wanted to share!
We are so glad that Haven enjoys her Chemo Duck! Gabe and I hope he brings her much joy and comfort!Gabe's Chemo Duck program has now returned to Gabe's My Heart in Nashville TN, while we are still close to the ASCEND foundation and their endevours they are now developing an educational project of their very own. Thank you for your wonderful comments and support of Gabe's Chemo Duck.
