REMSA and the Cerebral Palsy Parent Network partnered to offer a safe holiday experience for medically fragile children

This holiday season, the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA) and the Cerebral Palsy Parent Network teamed up to host an exclusive Cookies and Cocoa with Santa event for children with Cerebral Palsy. The special event offered medically fragile participants with an exclusive and thoughtful holiday party experience tailored to meet their needs.

“Our hope is that through events like this, REMSA will continue the dialogue with populations with specific medical needs with the goal of always providing appropriate, compassionate and respectful care,” said JW Hodge, chief operating officer, REMSA. “This is a festive event where we have the opportunity to spread a little extra holiday cheer for a very special group of children in a safe and comfortable environment.”

Children enjoyed pizza, a hot chocolate bar, seasonal activities and a visit with Santa. REMSA medical providers were available to assist with lifting children from a wheelchair to Santa’s lap to share their Christmas wishes.
