A Special Visit to Stanford Children's Hospital

Posted by Joyce Kwon on September 22, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Caitlin Gowdy, the co-founder of the club, helped arrange a volunteer opportunity for the Appassionato members of Children in Need Club to accompany children who receive dialysis treatment at Stanford’s Children Hospital.


On September 22, Peggy Cui, also a club co-founder, led 9 other San Domenico High School students along with Dr. Doris Brown of San Domenico, to the Dialysis Center at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.


Club members spent their afternoon playing board games and Wii games with the kids while they were receiving dialysis treatment. We were particularly thankful that Sophia was able to accompany one boy from Mexico. The room was filled with energy and laughter as the club members and the kids socialized and exchanged casual conversations with each other. Later on, Joyce Kwon, Amy Kwon and Cherry Yuan performed live music for the kids. Doctors commented that club members put a lot of smiles on these children’s faces. They also invited the club members to come back again.


The Fermata Music Group of Children in Need will host a fund-raising concert on October 28 at 6:30 pm at Tamalpais Methodist Church, in Mill Valley. This concert will provide monetary support for the uncompensated children who receive dialysis treatment at the Children's Hospital at Stanford.
