SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Camp Sunshine and Triangle Ice hosted a snow day for pediatric patients at the Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah.

The late February winter storm transformed the hospital’s campus into a winter wonderland, giving the young patients a day to escape cancer and just enjoy being a kid.

“This is a sense of normalcy during a time of childhood cancer, diagnosis and treatment," said Dr. Evangeline Brown, Pediatric Hematologist-Oncologist at Memorial Health. "It’s a time to have fun which is what we’re so thankful for Camp Sunshine to be able to provide, not only in the Summer Camp - Family Camp setting, but also support in our clinics.”

The snow day also included hot chocolate, arts and crafts and more.
