Edinburg, TX—For young patients at DHR Health, a small act of kindness ensures that children are comfortable in what can be a very scary situation. In December 2018, DHR received a donation of more than 40 teddy bears to give to children in the emergency room and oncology unit.

The bears provide comfort for a child whose family member is sick or injured, and help ease a little one’s fear and discomfort during what is usually an unhappy visit to the hospital. The donation program, started by Paula Owen of the Rio Grande Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in 2017, continues to provide stuffed animals for children in the hospital throughout the year.
