Did you know it窶冱 Random Acts of Kindness Week? Laura is a patient of pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. John Blanco. Before coming to the HSS Lerner Children窶冱 Pavilion, she was admitted to a local facility when she was 4 years old. Scared in a strange hospital bed without any comforts of her home, a nurse brought Laura a small blanket that brought her much comfort during her stay. Now in the 3rd grade, Laura wanted to pay it forward by making a few blankets for our patients to hopefully bring them similar comfort! #hospitalforspecialsurgery #hsskids #rakweek2018
