Christmas Joy at the Hospital

By  | 

Kenneth Frame's holiday crooning often brings a smile to faces of children staying in the pediatric wing of the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

From babies to teens, Frame spends time with each child at the hospital.

"I sing to them and I use cartoon voices and whatever I can do to just make them smile and just let them know that, hey, I know that you might not be feeling that well right now, but it's going to be okay," explains Frame.

Frame stops in on teenage patient Frankeia Jones who says she may have to stay here for a couple of days.

"It really was special to me, ‘cause I mean, I was in here sick. I really wasn't expecting anything from anybody really other than my family, and he came in and it brightened up my day," says Jones.

Frame also visited with one-week-old Wesley and his mother, Blair Heusdens.

"He just got put back in the hospital for jaundice and he's been under some UV lights for the last couple of days," Heusdens explains.

Heusdens says Frame's visit was a nice way to spend part of her Christmas morning, even a Christmas in the hospital.

Kenneth Frame gives each child and their parents a gift when he visits them. Frame, his employer, the Tallahassee Parisians department store, and their employees privately fund this program.
