It was all about putting a smile on the kids faces.

"They spend long days here at our clinic receiving chemotherapy and other treatments," said Katherine Salkanovic, director of Patient Experience for Cure for The Kids. "So, to be here for long hours when you see a Star Wars character come through the door, it truly puts a smile on their face. It literally makes their day."
