We visited Ward 18 armed with goodies and guitar and entertained some kids in the common area. After playing You're Not Eating Me, my picture book song and several verses of Old McDonald we were asked to go to the paediatric oncology daystay area. There one of the little oncology patients was getting some of her treatment. The paediatric oncology daystay area is part of ward 18.
Bianca had a few years ago been in Ward 18 and was today wearing her beads of courage. The beads represented the many and varied treatments she'd had to fight her leukemia. I felt priveleged to be there to give some pleasure to the young children who were going through a lot of pain and discomfort.
Lea gave out some copies of my book and Bianca gave out stickers and balloons.
Here are some photos of our visit.
