Let me introduce you to our stars…

>Jubilee Wheatman, Adrian Garcia and Brooke Dively have walked through the doors many times at Children’s. Jubilee for cancer treatment, Adrian for a kidney transplant and Brooke for pacemaker surgery and heart checkups.

But last week, all three patients walked through our doors again for a completely different reason. Their visit wasn’t for scans or surgery or anything of that nature. They were here to be stars of their own show – one that will be on TV when their stories begin airing soon as part of our hospital’s new ad campaign.

The scene looked like something from the Academy Awards. The red carpet was rolled out, paparazzi were in place and, most importantly, smiles were on every face. Jubilee, Adrian and Brooke each arrived at Children’s in a fancy car with a crowd of nurses, doctors and other Children’s employees waiting to cheer them on. Even Dr. Dev Desai, Adrian’s transplant doctor, met him on the red carpet to dole out hugs and high-fives.

The trio, wearing tiaras, boas and star-studded glasses, made their way into the hospital and took their places in director’s chairs. Behind-the-scenes footage from their recent commercial shoot in Los Angeles played on the screens before Jubilee’s commercial was debuted.

Take a look at the video from the stars’ big day:

The kids soaked up the attention, each in his own way. Jubilee waved, Adrian danced and Brooke jumped up and down. Afterward, employees collected photo cards for each patient and lined up for autographs.

I love how this event put our kids in the limelight, exactly where every one of our patients deserves to be.

Get your own sneak peek at Jubilee’s amazing story, which will begin airing on Monday, May 31. And stay tuned for Adrian and Brooke’s commercials in the coming months.

    >I LOVE it! Brooke, Adrian, & Jubilee are truly superstars & deserved their red-carpet treatment! Loving the new campaign too. Jubilee's story was on the back of the new DallasChild, and it really stood out. Can't wait for the commercial & the other stories to debut!
