He may be getting ready to fly all around the world but Santa recently took some time out of his extremely busy schedule to visit the nicest kids around. Of course, we’re talking about our awesome patients here at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The kids wrote extra special letters to Santa so he could see not only why they should be listed at the top of the Nice list, but also what would make their holidays very merry.

Cheyenne is 12 years old and has done a good job sharing her things (and eating candy canes!).

Max is 12 years old and has tried very hard to get good grades and not spend too much time watching TV. In addition to the PS4 he’s hoping for, he’d most like to get to spend time with his family.

These letters help remind us that at the end of the day, we’ve got some really amazing kids to care for and we wouldn’t be able to do so without your help and support.  So as you get ready to celebrate the holidays with your loved ones, thanks for all you do for Phoenix Children’s Hospital!

P.S. If you’re looking for last minute gift ideas, don’t forget you can make a donation in someone’s honor. What could be a better gift than to help spread healing and hope to the very deserving kids treated right here at Phoenix Children’s Hospital?
