Brianna Chambers is truly a gift to the Lucile Packard community. We met her when my son was hospitalized and she invited him to be on her podcast. Somehow she got a teenage boy (grumpy about being in the hospital) to smile, joke around, and still talk seriously about his illness. We are so lucky to have her!!
