Also for March:
Carla Martin Bandage Drive for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital
The Annual drive to provide what is needed for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital
In 2008 during a tour of the cancer ward at Mary Bridge Children’s hospital, we had the pleasure of meeting two young children going through treatment. At the end of their time, they were allowed to go to a treasure chest where they could pick out a children’s themed bandage to cover up where the IV had been. What we learned from the staff was that the hospital could only purchase generic bandages and the kid-themed ones had to be donated. Sometimes just the choice of a favorite color or character on a bandage can cheer up a child, thus the Annual TCT Bandage Drive was born.
