On behalf of the oncology and ICU patients and families we would like to thank you for your incredibly generous donation of cozy sheets and blankets. ... I wish you were there to see smiles and looks of excitement on the faces of the patients, families, and staff as we rolled the three large carts piled high with the sheets... Every patient was able to receive a set of sheets thanks to you.
In one room there was a 6 year old girl who has had a tough, lengthy admission over the past few months. She was wearing a Princess Sophia shirt and her face lit up when she saw the sheets with Princes Sophia that were for her. She hugged them tightly to her chest and asked her mom to put them on her bed right away!
Many of the families immediately put their sheets on their beds and were overjoyed that their rooms felt "more like home". The teenagers had a ball choosing their favorite color and pattern. The NE Patriots sheet set was a huge hit and went to the biggest Pats fan :) He was over the moon!
Thank you for sharing your time, stories and kindness with us. We can't express in words what this donation meant to our patients and families. It was so special meeting you all.
