Making a difference in her own way

As a former Children’s Mercy patient, Catherine is grateful for the outstanding medical care she received to treat challenges related to her cerebral palsy. But she also knows the importance of a smile when patients and families arrive for a visit or treatment. That’s why she volunteers at the Kreamer Resource Center. “We all can make a difference in our own way,” Catherine said. “I try to make the day a little brighter for our families.”
