Jessica Schaer, KSN 16 anchor, live behind the scenes on tv!   She recently had a chance to be in Memphis and see firsthand St. Jude Childrens’ Hospital in action.   Joplin News First got a chance to catch her while she was live on the air with Shelby on Living Well. 

(JOPLIN, MO) — Jessica is sharing firsthand inspiring stories after her recent trip to Memphis to see the hospital up close ♥️.  She mentioned to us just a few things that she noticed that make this hospital different than others for families.  

“Little red wagons instead of wheelchairs, the whole hospital is so well-thought out.  They even set the smell .  It’s obviously [safe] because there are sick kids there but they pump in a certain smell so these kids aren’t freaked out when they go there.”

It seems like they’ve thought of everything?  “Even when you look up,” Jessica continues.  “The ceiling tiles are in the shape of a cloud, clouds!  So the kids don’t feel like they are in a hospital, because they are going through some really tough stuff while they are there.”
