The most popular guy in town arrived by helicopter today at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha. Santa joined local U-S Marines and handed out toys to children having to spend their holidays at the hospital.
Erin Nahorny’s six year old son is receiving cancer treatment at Children’s Hospital. She said he was very quiet during the trip from Columbus this morning but perked up when he heard that Santa would be visiting.
Nahorny says, “I’ve said this 100 times but this is a really difficult journey to go through cancer with your child so for the hospital to do this means the world to us.”
Santa’s visit and helicopter arrival is an annual event at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.
