Hospice workers spread holiday cheer to Brooklyn children
Staff members from MJHS helped spread some holiday cheer Friday to sick children by singing Christmas carols and handing out gifts.
"Life can be a little bit limiting and so sometimes if a child can't go out a lot, we like to come and visit them so they indulge us," says Linda Sterz, of MJHS.
The MJHS staff members handed out gifts for kids like 2-year-old Cimya Stephenson, who has brittle bone disease and 16-year-old Arnoldo Pagan. Pagan has fibrolastosis and recently had a lung transplant. He says it's really hard to be stuck inside, but was so happy to receive gifts.
The workers say seeing the look on the kids' faces makes it all worth it.
