If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it? “The candy bar that I would create would have milk chocolate and mint swirl covered with crisped rice and caramel.”

Share a favorite volunteer experience or story “I have so many volunteer experiences, but one fun memory I remember was when a young patient was looking for a bingo prize. I was helping him find the perfect toy; he found it and started playing with it right away!”
