It is extremely stressful on the children and their families to face the surgeries that are performed on them. Sheila and her assistant Tu were absolutely brilliant (as our beloved British counterparts would say). They were very crafty and entertained the children, doing everything short of dressing up as clowns. They made them laugh and smile. It was very rewarding to see these children play and just have fun.
