With trees decked in colorful ornaments and houses adorned in festive lights, the holiday season can be an exciting and joyous time, but for some, it can be challenging when spent in a hospital room away from loved ones and traditions. This is especially true for pediatric patients. Fortunately, with excessive support from the Fort Wayne community and its professional sports teams, the pediatric patients at Lutheran Children’s Hospital were able to enjoy visits from athletes, coaches and mascots to spark some excitement the week before Christmas. Both the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and the Fort Wayne Komets paid visits to patients on consecutive days bringing with them toys and gear and receiving plenty of smiles in return. A simple gesture to show patients that they are loved during this holiday season means a great deal to patients and their families all year round.
