Carnival Cruise Line unveiled its newest ship, Carnival Celebration on Sunday, Nov. 20 in Miami. While fish are usually found in the sea, one special fish has pride of place onboard the gleaming new vessel: a sculpture of a multi-colored fish inspired by an original piece of art created by a patient of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

This is the second Carnival ship to feature a statue based on patient art and brought to life by artist Tylur French. French’s latest installment is an interpretation of a painted fish created by 11-year-old Bridget, who was treated at St. Jude for bone cancer. Thanks to the lifesaving treatments developed at St. Jude, Bridget rides horses, plays basketball, and swims. Bridget was among those present at the ship’s unveiling and had the chance to see the statue her art inspired.

Art therapy is a part of the holistic treatment offered at St. Jude, bringing joy to patients and families during difficult moments. Hallways and common areas on the St. Jude campus regularly display bright, colorful art created by patients.

Holiday season has started and we are all looking forward to spending them with our loved ones. Some people though will have to spend their holiday in the hospital. Spending the holidays in the hospital isn't ideal. In St. Jude they do their best to help all patients celebrate. A team of St. Jude doctors, nurses and staff are singing to the patients and families, one patient room at a time. Santa delivers presents to each patient on Christmas morning. Gestures like this are what make St. Jude so special, and it is the best medicine for the patients and their families.

American Internet Tech proceeds to one more monthly donation towards St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our wishes to all the parents at the hospital this holiday season: Don’t give up! Keep going! You’re all strong, amazing parents.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New year!
