When being in the hospital for another admission becomes you life you try and make the best of it. Then there’s another admission and another, a birthday, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, soon there are more days in the hospital than out of the hospital. You do what you can to make the best of it. The staff know you and they try to make your stay a little easier. But every time you go in you lose a little of yourself.m, you lose a little more dignity. When Gracies Gowns came into our lives it was just a gown or something to wear at another admission, it was dignity. Jessica gave my daughter back a piece of her life that had been chipped away more and more with each admission. She now walks the hall with a new level of pride and confidence in her Gracies Gowns. She doesn’t lose herself when in the hospital, she isn’t just another patient, she is Allie and they see her. Gracies Gown filled a piece of Allie’s life that we saw was missing but couldn’t phantom a way to give it back. Who know a gown would be so magical? Gracies Gowns are just that. They allow Allie to stand a little taller, more confident and ready to tackle the trial ahead of her. Thank you Jessica for providing that missing piece.
I heard about Gracie's Gowns, Inc from a fellow military family who had received a gown for their daughter. I checked out their website and was so touched that I started donating and supporting them as much as I can, whether it is donating monthly if I can or buying raffle tickets when they are offered. I will continue to support them. I love what they do for families who are going through such hard times, these gowns are giving them some sunshine where they may not be able to see any otherwise.
My child received a gown on two separate occasions, two years apart. The splash of color the hospital gowns added to the dull hospital setting was nice to see. My child name was embroidered on the gown as well which made it special. Jessica truly works from her heart when making these gowns. What a nice item to have durring a hospital stay! I recommend having a hospital gown made for your child durring a sad time, it makes them feel special. All the nurses on the floor had to come see miss amberlyn in her rock star gown!
Gracie's gown has been a blessing to my family! I have two children with multiple health issues. My son has a parlayed colon and in 2012-2014 he spent 128 days in the hospital! The gown is like a hug to him he had 26 times he had to have a test, tube replacement or surgery he said it was like his Jessica holding him tight why he was scared! My daughter has epilepsy and has a VNS she been hospitalized for that surgery and for days due to seizures. She says her gown makes her feel like a princess takes the scary part of the hospital away!
