You'd make this face too if you had to wear hospital gowns! Luckily, Iz-Bee Jammies dropped off NEW pajamas for Issac and other pediatric patients at Nebraska Medicine. The annual donation is made by Izzy Clark, who battled leukemia and had a stem cell transplant. Izzy also disliked wearing hospital gowns, and made it her mission to bring comfort to other patients. #FeelGoodFriday
