    Good luck kids.

    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?)

    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.
