Santa Spreads Holiday Cheer with Help from Local Firefighters

I have always counted firefighters among my list of heroes – along with CHOC doctors and nurses, of course.  Today, firefighters from the City of Orange were big heroes to our patients for escorting Santa to our campus – despite the rain.  Patients gathered in the playrooms to see the big guy in the red suit riding on a firetruck,  with sirens blaring, behind the hospital.  Santa, along with the firefighters, came into the hospital to spread a little holiday cheer.  Our young patients could not take their eyes off of our special guest.  (See the photo if you don’t believe me.)

Out of respect for Mr. Claus, I stayed low key – I didn’t want to take the attention away from him.
