Thank you to PetSmart and to customers who have so generously provided stuffed animals for the Comox Valley Hospital over the last few months.
CHERISH cher·ish 1a: to hold dear, feel or show affection for; 1b: to nurture, keep or cultivate with care and affection.
A great word to reflect upon at this time of year and a fitting name for this cute little guy who will undoubtedly be cherished by a child who has to visit the hospital for care.
Stuffed animals provide a sense of comfort when children are anxious about being at the hospital. Healthcare staff are grateful they have them to offer in these circumstances.
