This touching video is a must-watch. The piece focuses on a young mom whose serious illness has kept her hospitalized for more than a month. When the patient’s care team learned of her son’s first birthday, they sprang into action and threw the little boy a party right then and there – ensuring that his mom wouldn’t miss this most important milestone.
“Some patients tug at your heart,” Hirut Truneh, the unit’s patient care manager, told Stanford Hospital’s Sara Wykes, who produced the video alongside Todd Holland. The video certainly tugged at mine.
