Each of the 97 patients at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children’s inpatient facility in Bayside, had the opportunity to really think about what they wanted for Christmas and that’s exactly what they got, courtesy of Moby Kazmi, CEO and Managing Partner of CareMed Pharmaceutical Services in New Hyde Park.
Mr. Kazmi asked for a wish list of what each patient wanted and he made sure to fulfill each of their wishes. Among some of the wishes were pillow pets, lava lamps, cars, trucks, itunes gift cards, dolls and more, all of which were delivered.
Along with a few of his family members, Mr. Kazmi visited each patient floor of the hospital handing out presents to all the kids, bringing them an early holiday treat before Christmas day.
“It was a wonderful opportunity for us to spread a little joy to St. Mary’s Kids during the holidays and watch their faces light up as they got their presents, said Mr. Kazmi. My family and I really enjoyed meeting all the Kids and just spending time at a hospital that provides the best possible care for children with special needs.”
