    Special thanks to @kyleclifford13 and our friends from the @LAKings for spending time with the kids at CHLA. Kyle spent time in our dentistry department showing off the few pearly whites he manages to keep in his mouth through his career. It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality, right Kyle? . . #GoKingsGo #MakeMarchMatter

    When Kristianna had the chance to come back to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles with @thedrybar to hold an event for patient families and staff, she didn’t hesitate in the slightest. Because to her, this was more than just sharing her passion as a blowout specialist; This was her way of giving back to the people that had helped her and her family during a difficult time. —— In 2013, Kristianna’s daughter, Khloe, was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, cancer of the eye. Her doctor, Jonathan Kim, helped Khloe fight and after six months, the tumor was gone. However, being stubborn, as cancer sometimes is, it not only came back a second time, but a third time as well. To defeat the cancer once and for all, Khloe needed to give up her right eye. —— But every step of the way, there was a special person in their corner rooting them on: Rosa, a child life specialist. “There wasn’t a visit to CHLA that Rosa wasn’t a part of,” says Kristianna. “She was always ready to put a smile on Khloe’s face, ease her nerves and provide friendship.” —— Today, Khloe is a spirited, goofy and cancer-free 8-year-old. And now, Kristianna gets to come back, not as a patient family, but as a team member of Drybar … Which brings us back to the photo above. The person in the chair? That’s Rosa, and that’s Kristianna behind her. Four years later, they are reunited in the most special way possible—a full-circle moment. —— “I can’t even think about Rosa and Child Life without tearing up,” says Kristianna. “As much as they gave to Khloe, they gave to me. I have been on the other side of this and appreciate every single kindness that was offered to me. I couldn’t have gotten through without the support.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• If helping to cure cancer for kids like Khloe and supporting more moments like this one matters to you, #MakeMarchMatter. In the month of March, @thedrybar will generously donate $1 from every blowout sold in its L.A. shops. Visit www.makemarchmatter.org/event/drybar for more info. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

    Day 2 of 5: Art Therapy with Heart Patient Casey ----- Art Therapist Nicole likes to give Casey lots of choice and empower him. He doesn’t have much control over what happens in the hospital, and waiting for a heart transplant is tough. Casey’s family likes to focus on his strengths, courage, and resilience. Nicole echoes that in his Art Therapy sessions. Nicole asked Casey to create a message the world needs to hear and that might help other kids in the hospital. Casey’s message: “Never Give Up.” . . #creativeartstherapy #arttherapy#musictherapy #CATW2017 #heart4casey

    Sometimes the best medicine is no medicine at all. At Children’s Hospital Los Angeles that’s when our Expressive Arts Therapies program steps in. A program that can be prescribed by any clinician just like medication to decrease pain, lower blood pressure and improve coping skills. In celebration of National Creative Arts Therapies Week, we’re taking you through a day in the life of the Expressive Arts Therapies program at CHLA. . . Day 1 of 5: A 9:00am team huddle before the music and art therapists are sent off to their hospital floors. Armed with music instruments and art supplies, the therapists are trained, informed and ready to wheel their carts to any patient or parent in need. . . #creativeartstherapy #arttherapy #musictherapy #CATW2017
