A Sweethearts’ Dance at UR Medicine’s Strong Memorial Hospital

My daughter was
a little upset that I couldn’t attend with her, so we had my stepfather, it’s her grandfather,
step in to take my place. They got all dressed up and they got to the
dance. They were there about 15 or 20 minutes and
got a really nice picture taken of them. And she kind of had a breakdown because she
noticed everybody was with their dads and not their grandfathers. The staff here put on a really, really nice
little party for us, where we could get the opportunity to have that moment with
my daughter. It definitely was a surprise. I didn’t really know what was up until I was approaching the doorway and I could hear the music playing pretty loud
and hear the kids giggling and stuff. So, I knew, I knew they were up to something. (Girls squealing!) Dada! Dada! What’s up? What’s up? What’s up, Mara? How are you? What’s going on? Wow, Meena. Wow, you’re all dressed up too. The first couple weeks I was here, they kept
saying we’re like a big family up here. Especially O (blood type) patients, because
you’re here the longest. When they did that for me, it was, you know,
they really came through on that. I knew they weren’t joking when they said
that. So it was very nice. Very…blew me away.
