Helping Cope with Treatment

Child Life Specialist Program:

Our core program funds the Child Life Specialist position at Nemours Children’s Health in Jacksonville, Florida. Through play, learning and self-expression, children are able to minimize the stress of treatment.


The Christy Fund is a restricted account established in memory of Christy Keirnan to ensure funding for the Child Life Specialist position at Nemours Children's Health. A crucial role on the child's healthcare team, the Child Life Specialist provides a friendly face to an otherwise frightened child.
