Mickey Mouse visits MGHfC patients.

Making memories with Mickey



“I think it was an awesome idea to have Mickey come because the kids were extremely excited. It definitely brought smiles to not only the patients’ faces but to their families, as well as the staff on the floor.” – Lauren Mastromarino, patient care associate on Ellison 18

Mickey Mouse made a special surprise visit to MassGeneral Hospital for Children’s inpatient floors Dec. 12. Mickey signed autographs, posed for pictures and helped children design crowns, tiaras and mouse ears. He also donated 100 tickets to patients and their families to enjoy the “Disney On Ice Celebrates 100 Years of Magic” show.

This holiday season also marked the 10th annual visit from the Baker Family, who delivered build-a-bear stuffed toys they made for pediatric patients.
