Shop with a Doc
Shop with a Doc is a magical experience for our youngest burn patients. Last year, forty-eight pediatric burn survivors were whisked away from the JMS Burn Center via limousine to meet their burn care providers and enjoy a holiday shopping spree. Through various donations and sponsorships, each child is allowed to shop for the items on their holiday wish list. They are accompanied by Burn Center physicians and staff, firefighters, and other volunteers as they eagerly shop and enjoy a visit from Santa.
It is a fun-filled event that brings many smiles to these deserving patients and their families.Olaf & Anna from Frozen and Santa himself helped them search toy aisles at Target for all the wishes on their Christmas lists. Moms & dads were thrilled to see their children enjoy these moments outside the burn center with their doctors and nurses, and your generosity fueled the moment that many of these children will remember as the first normal, lighthearted one of their recovery.
