Cate and I had a lot of fun with the Valentine's Card we made for the Hospital, with her lovely illustration on the front and my story about Stephanie the Stethoscope on the back. (See the full story via the side bar). We gave it out throughout the wards, via Radio Lollipop and the Friends Foundation shop.
Stethoscopes are very good at listening so make good match-makers. We invited other people to make up stories about Stephanie. Ten year old Noah had her making a match between Serena the syringe (sad because no-one likes her) and Pat the Plaster who's a bit of a joker and believes in laughter as a way of healing. Here they are having their first date on Dave's arm - broken while doing karate. The sun even shone for them!
One or two children also made their own cards for loved ones, including this beautiful one by 10 year old Freya.
