Vet for a day
Young heart transplant patient (and cat lover) visits UF Small Animal Hospital
AnnaRose Van Sciver, a University of Florida Health heart transplant recipient, has a dream of one day becoming a veterinarian. On Jan. 23, AnnaRose, 10, visited the UF Small Animal Hospital with members of UF's Dance Marathon team, who followed her tour to create a video for their Milestones Campaign.
Dance Marathon creates video campaigns that focus on children who have been helped by the UF Health Shands Children's hospital and the Children's Miracle Network. View previous Milestone videos here: http://bit.ly/1Enc3Nq.
AnnaRose was able to meet many UF veterinarians, students and staff members as she brightened the hallways. Her visit culminated with a surprise: she was able to help Dr. Amy Stone, a clinical assistant professor of primary care and dentistry, perform an “exam” on a cat. Dr. Stone designated AnnaRose as the cat’s “student of the day” and said she did a great job.
