Children's Hospital Visit

Today R2 was privileged to visit Children's Hospital Orange County (CHOC), to help make the day a little brighter for some of the patients.



A young man was being awarded Hero of the Month. Star Wars characters were there to present him with certificates and other goodies. R2 had a medal to deliver, which I wrapped onto one of his utility arms.



His mom signed a photo waiver, and we were able to take a group picture with the patient and the Star Wars characters.



R2 and the characters also made visits to other sick kids' rooms, but no photos were allowed.

I try never to take for granted the blessings of good health, and today really drove home that point.

You're right John, this is what it's about. The high-profile events will come and go, but these are the ones that make a lasting impression and a difference.

Thanks,
Victor
