FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Dec. 11, 2017) – Patients at Lutheran Children’s Hospital benefit year-round from the outpouring of kindness this region demonstrates, especially during the holidays.

Listed below are just a few of the special activities happening prior to Christmas. Media must notify Geoff Thomas if interested in covering any LCH visit or activity as consent of patients will need to be coordinated with parents or guardians in advance.
