Executive Director Val Anderson says, “This is something I love to do each year. It’s a wonderful way to connect with the patients and families as we bring a ray of sunshine to their long hospital stay.
The current teenage patients really enjoyed receiving new movies and iTunes cards. The element of surprise on this holiday reminds them once again that we care deeply. Bringing fun to our patients lightens the seriousness of what they are experiencing for a moment.
I wish we could do something special for them every single day while they are in the BMTU. In the meantime I’m encouraged that our program continues to move forward in its support of all the families who enter the doors of the BMTU.”
