Elizabeth Voyles, R.N., C.P.N., Palliative Care Nurse Coordinator at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, will be inducted into the Tenet Hero Hall of Fame for her dedication to creating a positive impact on the lives of children living with a critical or terminal illness. The Tenet Hero Hall of Fame is reserved for outstanding individuals who have made a remarkable impact on their workplace, communities and patients. Voyles has planned and coordinated the Princess and Superhero party for the palliative care patients and their families for the past nine years.
The Princess and Superhero party allows children with life-limiting illness and their families to create memories, have fun and celebrate life. This one-of-a-kind event allows each child a to wear a costume of their choice, play a variety of games and win prizes, and meet the superheroes and princesses they’ve dreamed of seeing. Of course, the event would not be complete without complimentary gift bags and photo albums to commemorate the day.
The event has become so popular that the number of children and families attending grows each year. Without Voyles heroic efforts and support from the Foundation, this extraordinary event would not exist in a community full of children and families in need of an escape from villainous medical conditions.
The Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation is proud to support the Princess and Superhero party.
