Hartford Hospital Pediatric Radiation Oncology Patients Meet Santa at 20th Annual Holiday Celebration

December 11, 2017

A visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus on Dec. 9 for pediatric radiation oncology patients and their families at the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital.  It was the 20th year of the party which  began as donation of candy in 1998 by United Technologies employee Steve DesRoches and has expanded to a much anticipated holiday celebration with presents for patients, a reading of the Polar Express, holiday crafts, and plenty of delicious holiday treats.  Thank you to Steve, his wife Terri and UTC employees and friends of UTC for their continued support,  and to all staff and volunteers who made this another memorable holiday season for our patients.
