Children’s TV star surprises patients at GMH

Children at Guam Memorial Hospital were treated to a surprise Valentine’s Day visit from Clifford the Big Red Dog, PBS Guam announced Thursday. Each child received a special Valentine card  and gift from their famous new friend.

“Clifford, the star of his own PBS show, is an advocate for educational television and wants to let everyone know that PBS Guam is a viable option for their  children’s entertainment,”
the release stated.

The visit was made possible by the staff and management of the Guam Educational Telecommunications Corp., better known as PBS Guam.

“Not only does PBS Guam broadcast the best quality and most educational programs on television for kids, we also move beyond the family living room or tablet to engage and inspire children to  be ready and eager to learn,” said General Manager Ina Carillo.

“It was heartwarming to see smiles from patients, parents and their nurses,” she said. “Sometimes, simple gestures can go a long way to lift your spirit and spark recovery.”

Mascot visits like these bring joy to the kids, said Ruth Sabangan, head nurse at Guam Memorial Hospital. “When our community makes donations like your books and toys, GMH can really focus  on patients’ needs.”

GMH guest relations coordinator Maria Perez said, “Not only do we  appreciate, but our patients appreciate even the smallest of gestures from our community. We have ‘pay-it-forward’ cases  where groups donate toys and clothes, and the receiver is so touched, they are inspired to pay it forward themselves.”
