Toys Help Kids Heal At MSU Pediatric Clinic

June 25, 2017

A Michigan State University pediatric health clinic that manages care for children and young adults with cancer and certain blood diseases has been spreading cheer to their patients through a partnership with The Bottomless Toy Chest.


The Bottomless Toy Chest made a delivery to MSU Pediatric Hematology Oncology Tuesday, June 13, 2017, just like the non-profit has been doing since the relationship began in 2011.

The MSU pediatric hematology oncology team has been working with the local non-profit organization since 2011 and young patients get the chance to see a brighter side to often difficult visits. Recently, the nonprofit made another visit to the clinic with new toys.
