children who require care in our hospitals,” Norris said. “Corporate sponsors,
such as IHOP, and individuals throughout our region make a tremendous
difference in the quality of life for children entrusted to our care. We thank
everyone who donates on National Pancake Day and every other day of the year
for assisting us with the healing of children.”
