Retired nurse and tonsil cancer survivor Frannie Burgos of Sunbury knew she wanted to do something to make the holidays a bit brighter for children this year. She pulled together a group of friends and support group team members to help accomplish that goal.
Just before Christmas, Burgos, her husband Rick and sister Angela Furca-Brennan, CRNP, a hospitalist with Integrated Medical Group working at Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Schuylkill donated 106 new stuffed animals, mostly teddy bears, to benefit those who may benefit from them most, children. Burgos has no official connection to LVH–Schuylkill but wanted to try to make a difference during this seasonal time of the year. She is a graduate of of the Joseph F. McCloskey School of Nursing at LVHN.
