On behalf of the patients, families and staff at Dell Children’s Medical Center, the Child Life Department would like to extend a monumental THANK YOU to Gil Iwanski and Minis and Friends for the many afternoons they have brought their mini horses to the hospital to spend time with patients and families. The mini horses are so therapeutic for the patients, and one mother even commented that it was the first thing her son had responded to with a nod of his head since he had had surgery! Patients look so forward to seeing, petting and walking the horses and it is truly a delight for everyone who attends the event! We have so many staff members who, if possible, try to make it outside to see the horses as well – they are truly therapeutic for patients, families and the staff alike!
Thank you for the photos you leave behind for each patient, for the love you share by giving your time and energy to the hospital, and for your dedication to making a child’s day brighter with the presence of the mini-horses!
We appreciate all you do and look forward to continued visits in the spring, summer and fall!
