The dedicated pediatric care team will dress up and go from room to room, surprising the children with treats and fun gifts, bringing smiles to their hospital stay.

"Hospital stays can be challenging for children, especially on a holiday,” said Michele Axford, child life specialist at AdventHealth Tampa. “We are hoping to make their time at the hospital a little bit easier and more fun by bringing the excitement to them, allowing them to experience all the fun right from their hospital beds."
