“. . .Having a daughter who has frequented hospitals in the 2 young years of her life, I can tell you nothing is more disheartening as a parent when your child knows he or she is walking into a hospital and begins to whimper because they understand what’s next… and you can’t do anything to comfort them. The importance of what Smilezone does is that it makes these kids less afraid and more comfortable in an already uncomfortable setting. . . To me that’s the purpose of Smilezone. Taking the reality away for a little while and letting the imagination run free. Let the kids be kids. . . They deserve to have fun and be in a setting where they feel safe and comfortable and to me that’s what Smilezone provides.”
