‘Treat' Children At Sacred Heart This Halloween

SPOKANE, Wash. -  Holidays, they are how children relate to the calendar and the most anxiously awaited days of the year. With Halloween right around the corner, children everywhere are trying to figure out their biggest problem: What will they be for Halloween?

At Sacred Heart Children's Hospital however, one can imagine the problems of these children are much bigger. For the hospital's 40+ patients, Halloween will be celebrated in a much different atmosphere this year. Amid chemo treatments, shots and medical procedures, Halloween is a much-needed distraction for these brave children battling many different illnesses.

Every year the hospital throws a Halloween Party for the patients and their families that includes crafts, costumes and of course…candy. Donations from the community are always welcome and this year you can help by dropping by a new costume, goody bags of unopened candy, Halloween crafts or anything else you think could be used by the patients and their families.

The hospital treats children from birth to 18-years-old. Costumes should be tasteful and not scary as there are a lot of young children on the floor. You can take your donations to the Sacred Heart Children's Hospital administration desk on the 4th floor.

Have had to experience a child in your family battling an illness?  In what ways were needs met by the community and what did you appreciate most?
