Patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Wednesday sat in three small groups in the Activity Room to participate in a creative release that is a part of patient therapy. Like little Picassos at work, they drew, decorated and sketched on large foam letters – fully engaged with finishing and producing their artwork.
Around 5:30 p.m., 13-year-old Courtney skipped into the room, leading the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. The kids and parents suddenly lit the room with cheers and applause, welcoming the First Lady in pure Memphis style.
