Marine Unit Salutes Kids With Cancer

DSC_0301On October 29, Marines from the 4th Combat Engineer Battalion, in Parkville, Maryland visited our pediatric oncology patients. The Marines handed out specially made military tags and presented inpatients and outpatients with "honorary super kid Marine" certificates. They also performed a customized military salute and flag presentation to our childhood cancer director, Donald Small, M.D., Ph.D. and our clinical director, Ken Cohen, M.D.

Thank you for not only serving our country, but taking time to visit our patients and making them feel extra special.
