Less Clinical, More Care

Art therapist watches young girl paints with watercolorsAva Vanderhoef has received infusion therapy every week for nearly three years. Though she’s become accustomed to the routine, she still dreads the moment when the nurse inserts the needle into her chest.

Ann Walker oversees weekly art therapy sessions for Ava Vanderhoef and other patients in the Infusion Clinic.

“I just hate needles,” the 8-year-old says. But once it’s connected—a process known as “accessing”—to a port catheter under her skin, Ava relaxes. She helps the nurse secure the line attached to a saline drip, the delivery system for an essential enzyme missing from her body.

Then she settles in for eight hours of treatment.
