Scenes from Fathers Read, Including Star Wars Visits to Cardiac, Peds Units

6-year-old Ezra has a new friend.

Children and their families had the opportunity to listen to stories by Pima County Supervisor and members of the Dune Sea Garrison, who came to Tucson Medical Center to show their support of fathers’ involvement in literacy.

Across the auditorium, dads curled up on their rugs with their children to read and be read to. Perhaps the best compliment that can be served: Dads and children asked if the event will be hosted again next year.

For those children in pediatrics who couldn’t make it to the event, the Star Wars crew made it to them.

Check out the full story and photographs of the Empire’s invasion of the hospital on the slideshow at TMC for Children.
