Thoughtful 10 year-old provides cheer to Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital patients

by | Nov 29, 2019 | Local News | 3 comments

Christmas is a month away, but Aubree Hunt has already played Santa at Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital. She recently delivered more than a dozen pictures to patients at the Hospital. And she’s just 10 years old.


It started with a get-well card for her Nana who was a patient at the Hospital. But then Aubree noticed that other patients seemed sad and might need some cheering up as well. So, she got to work.

“Aubree has always cheered people up with little cards,” notes her Mom Nicole. “She asked the nurses how many patients were on the unit and then she got out her paper and markers as soon as we got home. Aubree delivered them the next day – including an extra one for Dr. Roger Drake, her Nana’s physician.

Dr. Drake says he’s very impressed with Aubree. “It was a touching experience for me. She wanted to be sure she didn’t miss anyone.”

“It made me feel really happy and I think they felt happy too,” says Aubree. “Some of them were sleeping so I just left the cards by their bed. Every card was from my heart.”
