Mickey visits CHOG

On October 3, Mickey Mouse and Disney on Ice performers visited the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. Performers read a story and Mickey visited with the patients. The Disney on Ice tour also presented Children’s child life specialists with a donation of teddy bears.

Child life specialists provide activities for children while they are at our facilities. Whether it is a visit from Santa for those children in the hospital during the holidays or therapeutic interventions for children during their chemotherapy treatment, play therapy plays a critical role in the healing process and helping a child feel normal. Materials used by Child Life are supplemented by generous donations.
