ROCHESTER, Minn. – Kids get excited to go trick or treating. For those who are in the hospital, going outside door to door isn’t possible.
That’s why pediatric patients at Saint Marys Hospital are having the candy brought to them.
Many hospital employees dressed up along with the kids.
Christian is a four-year-old battling leukemia. He dressed up as a police officer and even had a police car.
He’s in and out of the hospital often. His dad tells KIMT they’re thankful for days like this.
“I think we made the best of it,” Martijn Bos said. “We brought his costume and as you can see his police car and get to celebrate it this way with the other kids.”
There was also a costume contest for the kids.
