Gayle Garson was overwhelmed when her 9-month-old daughter, Robin, was diagnosed with leukemia. Shortly after she was diagnosed she had her Hickman implanted, a central venous catheter that allows medical providers to draw blood and administer medicine. Fearful her daughter would pull on the tubes hanging out of her chest, Garson created the Hickman Hider. Robin receives treatment at Seattle Children’s.
