Spread the "Hug"

At Food for Tots, we did a group hug and sending all our love to Sebestian.

Sebastian Yanquelevech, a 8-year-old who has been diagnosis of a brain tumour at age 4, suffered countless seizures, endured regular doctor’s appointments and underwent one major surgery. He went into the operating room at Sick Kids Hospital for a 5-hour surgery Thursday to remove a brain tumour that had been causing his daily seizures. It is his second surgery. The little boy who inspired a worldwid "Hug Day" is now out of surgery and is recovering, says his mom. 

The world is a busy, hustle-bustle place and we’re constantly rushing to the next task. By slowing down and taking a moment to offer sincere hugs throughout the day, we’re benefiting ourselves, others, and cultivating better patience within ourselves. Learn more here.
