I was looking at old photographs recently and realized that I’ve had quite a few looks in the last 50 years. Can you blame a bear for trying? When you’re friends with all the folks at CHOC, it makes perfect sense that I’d want to look my best. #thxCHOC

Thank you CHOC Doctors! - Not a day has gone by in the last 50 years that I don’t think about all the wonderful doctors at CHOC Children’s who patched me up after falling from that tree.
