Mets outfielder Michael Conforto visited patients at the Cancer Center for Kids at NYU Winthrop on Long Island as part of his Conforto Cares program. Michael met with children at the outpatient pediatric oncology division as well as going to the main hospital. He put a smile on all the children's faces by playing games with them at the center, taking pictures, signing autographs and giving all the patients Mets-themed goodie bags.
Conforto Cares aims to bring awareness to pediatric cancer and the challenges the children and their families face. Throughout the season, Michael has brought children battling cancer and their families to the ballpark for an afternoon of fun and baseball. Many of the children and their siblings at the Cancer Center had already met Michael at Citi Field through Conforto Cares, so it was a wonderful chance for everyone to reconnect.
