Lily and the Jonas Brothers

It all started when 16-year-old Lily Jordan, of Camp Hill, realized she would be at the Children’s Hospital getting chemotherapy and not able to use her ticket to the long-awaited Jonas Brothers concert at Hersheypark Stadium. The Four Diamonds teen posted an invitation for them to stop by her room on Instagram, which went viral and got the famous trio’s attention.

Kudos to the team of employees who made Lily’s patient experience extraordinary: Ashley Martin, resident; Sarah Miller, Child Life support associate; Patti Wengert, administrator on call; Adam Fook, senior security officer; Stephanie Reed, nurse manager; Crystal Turner, charge nurse; Steve Nicolosi and Gabby Wallace, Lily’s nurses, and Aubrey Mora, Four Diamonds social worker.

Penn State Health’s Office of Marketing and Communications team organized a press conference with Lily and her family on Sept. 3. The story was picked up by national media such as Inside Edition, People magazine, the TODAY Show, FOX News and more than 60 TV news stations across the country.
