My wonderful daughter Audrey loved Children’s Mercy Hospital staff, providers and volunteers. Although seriously ill from a rare nonmalignant disease, and hospitalized many times at several hospitals --maintaining Audrey’s sense of empowerment and participating in her medical care were her priorities.
Empowering others like Audrey
Through AudreySpirit, I hope to continue my daughter’s mission -- to make difficult times her peers must face as personable, comfortable and empowering as possible.
What is AudreySpirit?
AudreySpirit is a patient-centered movement. It uses clothing designed just for you based on shirts I made for Audrey during her extensive stay in the intensive care unit (ICU). These therapeutic garments help nurses get around invasive medical devices without having to disconnect them or contort the patient’s body into uncomfortable positions. And most of all, the clothing looks “normal.” A designer has helped me develop original patent pending designs to make high quality garments that are comfortable and useful in medical environments.
AudreySpirit is spread by its hospital customers and the service of authentic ambassadors. AudreySpirit's very first hospital customer is one of the 2013 US News and World Reports Best Children's Hospitals! Our Chief Patient Advocate, Adrianne, has been in extraordinary medically vulnerable positions while bearing the undeniable spirit of living the best life at all times. Adrianne advocates for others by sharing recommendations of how AudreySpirit clothing can make her most difficult times more personal and dignified. Each product listed on this website has been vigorously tested and is "Adrianne approved!" You can help spread AudreySpirit too! Like us on Facebook and tell your healthcare providers and friends!
AudreySpirit empowers adults too
