    Wyler holiday cards available

    Holiday greeting cards designed by patients at Wyler Children's Hospital are available for purchase now through the month of December. Proceeds will be used to buy toys and educational materials for the Wyler playroom.

    Three designs are available -- a tree, a snowman and a holiday photo frame. Patients at Wyler range from toddlers to teenagers, and many suffer from cancer, liver disease, burns or other serious medical problems.

    "Buying these cards directly benefits the young patients at Wyler Children's Hospital," said Karen Peck, Child Life Specialist. "It's a wonderful way to celebrate the season of giving."

    The cards contain a printed holiday message, and on the back of each card is the name of the child artist. Each box of 20 cards may be purchased for $15.

    The printing of the cards was donated by the Jel Sert Company, makers of Wyler's Drink Mix, Mondo Fruit Squeezers and other products.

    Cards may be purchased in the Child Life & Family Education Department on the lower level of Wyler Children's Hospital, Room C-10. To order by phone, call 702-6481. Orders may also be faxed to 702-3812. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted.
