Little Red Stories
Thirty years ago our best friend's 2 year old daugher was in Shands@UF battling cancer, we went every weekend to visit them and would pull her around the halls for hours in wagon's that were donated for them. We lost her at the age of 3. This past year my grandson was born at 27 weeks and was rushed to this same hospital and was there for 96 days. My husband and I talked often about the wagon that were no longer there or just in bad shape. The smiles we saw on the children's face when they got to feeling better or up to it or it was their turn to ride was just priceless! Please donate more "Wagons for Smiles" to the Shands@UF NICU and Children's hospital in Gainesville Florida. Thank you Cindy Johnson
Loved my radio flyer wagon when we had it. The wheels got busted when we used the wagon as a wheelbarrow to replace all of the sod in our yard. We had to replace the sod because we had a chinch bug problem, so the wagon did us good. Now we have a beautiful yard that the children can play in! But we need a new wagon lol.
I wish I had pictures but I dont. When my husbands contract was up for the USMC in 2015, we donated our wagon we couldnt move with us to the hospitality house across from the hospital by daughter spent 4 months in the NICU at. We figured families who had kids staying with them could enjoy it and use it to haul stuff the the hospital. It was like a Ronald McDonald house since New Hanover Regional didnt have one. Such an awesome group of people running it and keeping it going. I hope they are still getting good use out of it!
