The family of Jayla Tuck renovated the children’s playroom at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center on behalf of, Jayla Tuck, who passed away after a battle with Luekemia. Jayla was a four-year-old little girl full of life, who always had a smile for you even at her sickest moment.
She spent many hours in the playroom while an inpatient at Walter Reed during her last six months. As an honor and memorial to her spirit, the family took advantage of the opportunity to give something back to the dedicated people who helped them during this difficult time.
Their goal was to create an uplifting and cheerful playroom for all the children who are hospitalized in the future. A room, which reflects the great outdoors so children may escape the thought of their illness through play. The Jayla Tuck Cancer Foundation replenishes these toys yearly. Below are the before and after pictures of the Walter Reed Playroom.
