The family of Hailey Satterwhite recently made a generous donation of new toys to children receiving care at St. Anthony. Hailey's Toys for Healing was started in memory of Hailey Satterwhite of Carroll, Iowa by her parents Chris and Jannelle, along with her little brother Connor. Hailey passed away on July 5, 2018 from dyskeratosis congenita at 10 years of age.
Since age 4, Hailey had been in and out of the hospital multiple times along with many, many clinic visits. She became such a pro at having her blood drawn, she would tell the lab tech which arm and vein looked the best that day. She was always very brave, but a toy or prize for a job well done - or simply to pass the time - always brought a smile to her face. With Hailey's Toys for Healing, her family hopes to make hospital and clinic visits a little easier for kids.
