Players from the French international soccer team, Paris Saint-Germain took a break from scoring goals to visit patients at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. The Paris Saint-Germain Foundation arranged for players Javier Pastore, Giovani Lo Celso, Kevin Trapp, and Thiago Motta to meet with young soccer fans and patients in the new Advanced Pediatric Care Pavilion (APCP). The players were first given a private tour of the new building, including some one-on-one time with five patients.They were then greeted by a huge crowd of patients and families in the lobby of the APCP where they engaged in an interactive, fun soccer-themed workshop and passed out signed merchandise. A very special thank you to the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation for creating such a memorable day for our patients and families!
