I`m amazed someone hasn`t tried to stop this. Don`t get me wrong, I think it`s a very cool gesture, giving those children a few minutes of happiness amidst all the torment they are likely experiencing, but it seems like some dipsh/t would`ve tried to ruin this for everyone somehow.

its vandalism. Also it shows how the kids each have 14 tons of steel strength in them to get through it

(too much candy?)

if it gives the children something to smile at then i agree with it (and it doesn`t waste much time so nothing lost there)

And make a good horrer movie in about 100 years! The hospitol is old and deserted after a fire and the ghosts of the kids fill the place unable to leave because their idenitys are built into the building! Angry at having to suffer cancer at such a young age and wanting revenge on the world!

...If not then this is still a very nice thing to do :-D (or is it?)
