Enjoying Life Outside the Room

“This encourages the kids to be a little more happy,” smiles Magaly Martinez, mother to 16-month-old Milani Martinez. The family enjoyed a surprise visit from Santa Claus during the annual UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital holiday party. “We really enjoy these events because they’re something that helps the kids out a lot. They come out from their rooms and get to enjoy themselves. Milani is a TPN patient, which means she gets her nutrition through an IV line. She got an infection, so we came in. It’s going pretty good.”
