Eight-year old Sarah was waiting for her surgery in the pre-operative area of the Scottish Rite Hospital. She had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. "There were seven kids having surgery and it was bedlam," explains her father. "She was sitting in my lap and understandably frightened."
At the door to the cubical appeared Sarah's pastor, Dr. Tom Jordan. In his hand was a teddy bear blanket, which she immediately reached for. She was wrapped in the blanket while they prayed.
The blanket has contined to be a great source of comfort to Sarah. It has accompanied her to all of her appointments and was even spread over during an MRI test.
