If you haven’t noticed, all the little boys and girls are getting excited and into the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, many are struggling to find reasons to celebrate this year as they fight life and death battles within the corridors of the Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center.
For many kids, the trees, lights, and carols are beacons of hope. As they wage their battles with cancer, brain injuries, and any number of physical ailments, sometimes they just need a reason to celebrate and that’s why you absolutely have to mark Dec. 7 on your calendar.
On that joyous evening, the Duke team will be organizing The Teddy Bear Ball at the Duke Convention Center so the kids can get out and have some fun this season. This family-friendly event will be full of games and activities that adults and children will all enjoy, so grab your kids, invite your friends, and come out to celebrate life and amazing medical staff we have in our community.
