“My mom is having surgery today so, I’m waiting for her,” reveals Gloria, a family member waiting at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. “She’s having parathyroid surgery, so it will be an hour or two-hour wait. I was in the waiting room when they invited me to come to the art workshop. I’m making a water bottle with my name on it. Coming here is nice because it takes my mind off everything. Everyone has been so great since we walked in the door.”
