Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta takes care of kids in emergency situations, helps them go through chemo and offers other assistance. If you live close by, they’re always looking for volunteers to help make the days better for the young patients. If you don’t live nearby but you like what Kellie’s doing, there are other ways to help kids in hospitals. You might want to volunteer at your local clinic, or you can give cards and gifts to the kids there. Being hospitalized can be a really scary experience, especially for a young person, so things like that will def be appreciated!
Visiting a hospital might be especially personal to Kellie since a friend of hers was diagnosed with breast cancer. In order to show her friend support, Kellie shaved her own head. While we see her hair’s grown back, her dedication to people with serious illness doesn’t seem to have waned.
And it sounds like Kellie needs to return and sing again! Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Tweeted back to her:
@kelliepickler We cannot thank you enough for everything you did today! You are truly amazing, and we all adore you! Hope to see you soon!

Get involved with Sasha's Softies and brighten the days of kids in the hospital.
