"Its not just today, not just the Super Hero Day, they do a wonderful job here", said Tom Garzon, Jack's Dad. "We have been to alot of hospitals around the area and I can't say enough about this place. The staff has been wonderful".
When Pam Garretson, manager of Internal Communications at the hospital asked Jack who his superhero was, he paused and thought for a minute. "Superman and Jennifer, he replied".
