Doctors, nurses, and staff at Golisano Children’s Hospital will do nearly anything to make their patients smile, even if it involves getting slimed.

The patients and staff voted for five lucky or unlucky ones that would get covered in purple slime.

“It was actually really refreshing. I thought it was going to be cold, but it actually feels good,” Dr. Craig McArthur, Pediatric Oncologist at Golisano Children’s Hospital, said.

While that must’ve felt good on such a hot day, something that also feels good is knowing hundreds of people are rooting for you.

Logan Stryker, 9, is fighting a rare form of cancer. More than 200 people were wearing the shirt he designed at a golf tournament and barbecue on Sunday. Going as far as signing some of the shirts, giving him a celebrity moment to always remember.

Also, raising $6,000 from the sales of his shirt to help other kids at Golisano Children’s Hospital is a great bonus.
