Under the direction of Child Life Specialists, Betty Ann, gets the young patients to be creative. The day I met her they made purple, green and gold harlequin stick puppets for Mardi Gras.
The Arlington grandmother drives to Fort Worth twice a week to help give good medicine in the form of play therapy.
Betty Ann is one of more than 14-hundred volunteers who donated more than 100,000 volunteer hours in 2014. She told me her volunteer service is an extremely rewarding part of her life, in a place that's filled with joy.
