Kennedy Krieger

Patricia Shih and her husband, performer and accompanist, Stephen Fricker

Patricia and her husband gave a great show for the children at the Kennedy Krieger Institute who were not able to go home for Thanksgiving weekend. Most of them were non-ambulatory but they had a rockin' good time with Patricia.  They sang and composed songs and felt loved.  That's what it's all about.

Angie, a member of the Child Life Department, said "That was awesome!"

When performers come in to entertain our patients, it does a lot to help them have a successful stay at our hospital. It gives them a sense of home and life outside of the hospital. It picks up their spirits and takes their minds off of their medical issues. It gets them moving and stimulated which helps with their therapy goals.
