As a mother and grandmother, whom she refers to as the jewels of her crown, Baila has a deep passion for helping children and watching them thrive. Baila visited Frada in the hospital and gifted her a fashion doll as she went in for a surgical procedure. A huge contagious smile spread across her face and her Mom had tears of joy in her eyes. We cannot change a child’s situation but we are fortunate to distract them for a few moments.
Baila’s experiences as a certified life coach and as Doula CD(DONA) have been instrumental in her work with hospital staff and patients. She finds it gratifying to be on the giving end of bringing joy, cheer, and healing to children and their families. Baila is the Director of the Jewish Summer Fellowship (JSF), Women’s Division, a learning program for college students. She has volunteered for Toys for Hospitalized Children for over 20 years in various capacities and is currently the VP of Distribution.
