First Lady Visits Children's National Medical Center
Date:12/22/2009

In a tradition dating back to Bess Truman, Michelle Obama visits patients during holiday season

Washington, D.C. (Vocus) December 22, 2009 -- First Lady Michelle Obama, with daughters Malia and Sasha, along with dog Bo, visited patients and staff at Children's National Medical Center on Tuesday, December 22.

Mrs. Obama toured the Heart and Kidney Unit, where she met patients and families, as well as doctors and nurses. Following the tour, Mrs. Obama toured more areas of the hospital and arrived in the main Atrium, where she was greeted by many patients, families and staff.

In the Atrium, Mrs. Obama read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. Once she was finished, Malia and Sasha surprised the children with another book. They read Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner. The CAFÉ (Cultural Academy for Excellence) steel drum band played festive music and provided entertainment for the children.

Two long-time patients, Taylor Buckles, 8, from Stafford, Va., and Michael DeMaio, 13, from Severna Park, Md., escorted Mrs. Obama. Taylor has been treated in the comprehensive Spina Bifida Clinic for a tumor on her spinal cord. Michael is being treated by the Brain Tumor Institute for a brain tumor. Michael also spent his first week of life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children's National.

"It's been a longstanding tradition for First Ladies to visit the nation's children's hospital and we're pleased that Mrs. Obama has continued to bring joy to our patients and staff,” said Jacqueline D. Bowens, Executive Vice President and Chief Government and External Affairs Officer at Children's National.
