“Our patients are in love! Especially our Ariana Grande 'superfans” in the house,' said Kelli Carroll, director of the Chase Child Life program at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital, in a press statement. “We are thankful for all our wonderful partners who have donated in the past couple of weeks, including Ariana Grande, and for serving the needs of our hospitalized children. This pandemic may have changed how we do things, but we look for the same result – to alleviate the stresses of hospitalization and bring joy to our kids."
UCLAMCH shared a series of adorable Instagram photos on Wednesday (Dec. 23) of the kids smiling and holding their gifts. See here.
