"I have two terminally ill children so I'm in my child's life constantly at my hospital."
The sights and sounds of Halloween have taken over the Sparrow Children's Center Playroom.
"Spirit Halloween" brought in games, books, decorations, treats and costumes to get the kids in the Halloween spirit.
The store's district manager knows first-hand how much this means to the kids.
"I have two terminally ill children so I'm in my child's life constantly at my hospital," said Bill Clanton who is the District Manager of Spirit Halloween. "What the Child Life Program does is when kids are here, (it) provides them with entertainment, books activities, crafts (that) typically aren't funded by the hospital."
Donations from the public help make events like this possible. This year, more than $11 million dollars was raised, which will benefit kids at 140 hospitals around the U.S. and Canada.
