All of the patients prior to being released received gift bags full of stuffed animals, crayons, toothpaste, tooth brushes and other small toys. The patients were elated! The bags were made by a Filipino American children in Colorado. Included in the bags was a disposable camara so the family can take pictures of the children as they recover. The camaras are to be returned to Uplift and the patients will receive duplicate pictures. Patients also received a “Get Well Card”. This little boy could not take his eyes off the card and just kept pointing to his before surgery photo.
