MEMPHIS, TN (KAIT) - One Region 8 girl made a big impact on Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, and she wasn't even a patient there.

In 2014, we introduced you to Kinlee Weatherford. The young Paragould girl nearly drowned after having a seizure in the bathtub.

Kinlee was in intensive care at Le Bonheur for weeks and her big sister Carlee was there every step of the way.

Carlee helped out any way she could, and according to Le Bonheur, she made sure Kinlee's room was "decorated with bright, colorful artwork and never complained if she had to take a backseat to Kinlee's needs."

Le Bonheur was so impressed with Carlee's selflessness, they just announced "Carlee's Creation Station" will be located on the seventh floor of the hospital.

There, patients and their siblings can make art together.
