Peter, one of our volunteers, blows up balloons to make CURE a little more festive for the season. Some of the balloons exploded loudly. We think this might be why he’s wearing protective ear wear. He is so funny!

To keep our CUREkids program running, there are a lot of photos taken that never make it out of the digital realm. While we always show the photos to the patients, we’ve been able to hand out Fujifilm Instax prints to our patients thanks to some donations. Having a little photo souvenir never fails to bring out a smile!
