Pediatric Wing of Flagstaff Medical Center

Support the Louise Brooks Memorial Raffle - Northern Arizona
December 3, 2016 at this years Installation Event in Tucson

Who was Louise Brooks?  Louise volunteered at the University of Arizona and became an employee in 1977. Louise was always fun to be around and made holidays and birthdays special for everyone.  Louise was a founding member of the Arizona AALAS branch and received both the Technician of the Year & Member of the Year awards for her dedication.

Louise loved children and she came up with the idea of a yearly raffle with proceeds going for toys and games for sick children at the Arizona Cancer Center. The raffle was named for her after her untimely death in 1996 from complications caused by Lupus. The Arizona branch proudly has carried on the raffle in her honor.

 

The Pediatric Wing of Flagstaff Medical Center is geared specifically toward children. Fun decor, a hippopotamus examining table, stickers and treats as rewards, story & craft times and a dog therapy program are examples of the little things included to make patients’ stay a pleasant experience. A playroom is available for patients, outfitted with child furniture and plush bean bag chairs with a nutrition center where families of patients can help themselves to beverages and snacks. They want families to feel as comfortable as possible while their child is in the hospital and has comfortable and quiet spaces for families to rest, read and relax.

Please help Arizona AALAS support the children and families using the Peditatric Wing of Flagstaff Medical Center by donating an item or buying tickets. All proceeds from our northern members sales go to the Pediatric Wing of Flagstaff Medical Center.

Our Flagstaff members have chosen their charity in memory of Hazel Rose Redding “Chrystal's Little Angel” - My family and I think it would be wonderful to support the Pediatric Wing.  The night of Hazel's passing they worked so hard to keep her alive.  They had pictures of Hazel in the Nurses office and my letters of her continued health after her sickness in October.  Many of the doctors and nurses attended her services as well. - Chrystal Redding

Hazel Rose Redding, was born Feb. 1,  2007 - died June 3, 2008. She was a healthy, happy baby who brought joy to those around her. She won the battle with a life-threatening illness in October 2007. She was courageous and strong, living each day to its fullest. With her courage, she led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She could spend hours practicing to get in and out of the Barbie Jeep. She loved playing and climbing on her big sister, Leah, and dogs Chelly and Cammy. She recently learned to walk and was exhilarated by walking between mom and dad. With her passing, we remind others that her life is one to be celebrated. She will forever remain in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pediatric Wing at Flagstaff Medical Center
