Touching moments included:

  • Donned in superhero masks and capes, our bravest little heart warriors kicked off American Heart Month in style with a parade on the hospital floor where our patients are being cared with tons of love.
  • Patients in the Texas Children’s Heart Center celebrated with a parade led by the Child Life and Creative Arts teams, who passed out lots of heart-themed goodies including special heart lovies for the tiniest of our patients.
  • Our beloved therapy dog, Bailey, went door to door asking each patient to be her valentine.
