If you have ever had to spend gruesome long months (or even years) at a hospital you will immediately recognize how special this hospital and it’s staff and kids are when you walk into the wonderful new building that is Blythedale Children’s Hospital, bringing light into it’s little patient’s lives as well as their parent’s. The annual Christmas party for patients, former patients and their parents brings everyone (back) together for true holiday cheer, smiling faces and hugs and ice-cream & pizza for the little ones, who are more than willing & happy to share their early morning treats and Christmas star-crowns with you!
This year, as every year, and also the Holiday Express were back to be the house-band for their little fans’s Christmas gathering. And like every year stayed afterwards to take pictures with every child and staffer and to sign autographs and give hugs to the little friends he made over the years.
A truly wonderful event that makes you leave with a heart at least double the size bigger, a little bit closer to the size of ’s.
