Alumna lauded for extra-special care

Amy Federico McVeigh, ’91 BSN, sees children in crisis each day in her role as a nurse practitioner with Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. She makes an extra effort to help them cope with their hospitalizations. Her work was recognized in March with the Above and Beyond Award from the Connecticut-based Mill Foundation for Kids.

Federico extends herself beyond the routine for special activities such as visiting a patient in a rehabilitation facility on her day off, lifting the spirits of another young patient by taking her to a nearby Starbucks for a treat, and establishing a discharge check list to ease the transition to home for patients and their care teams.

The Mill Foundation supports research into cancer and other pediatric diseases and provides toys, games, art supplies and other gifts to children battling cancer and other illnesses.
