Child Life On Call: Parents of children with an illness or medical condition share their stories with a child life specialist


Jul 28, 2021

“For me, it's balancing supporting him in full honor of his disabilities and making sure I am advocating for him AND relating to him as fully capable and strong.”

Katie, Certified Child Life Specialist talks with mom of four, life coach and podcast host, Kara Ryska

Kara’s son was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after he turned 18 months old. We talk about what it’s like to hear that piece of information in the waiting room of a hospital and how differently people can react in that moment. Kara attributes her faith and her ability to continue to find “tools” to process her emotions have helped her go throughout this journey.
