Kami’s Jammies, one of six programs organized by the Casey Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization with a passion for encouraging pediatric patients, works with the UMCH Child Life team to make monthly visits to the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital where they provide new pajamas and themed parties for pediatric patients. During one such party, the Children’s Hospital helped host a “Pirates-and-Princesses” party, themed in honor of National Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day, and featuring an appearance by Rapunzel, a mermaid and two swashbuckling pirates. The parties are designed to help children feel like kids again and forget about being sick in a hospital.
