Antonio Banderas Brings Smiles, Cheer to Nicklaus Children's Heart Patients


This May, actor, humanitarian and Miami Fashion Week’s honorary president, Antonio Banderas, visited several patients and their families in the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Cardiac ICU. Banderas spent time playing with the patients (reminding a few of his role as Puss in Boots in "Shrek") and listening to their parents regarding their children's diagnoses. Banderas spoke with physicians and nurses in the unit, and took part in a special demonstration of the NCHSAnywhere BearCare remote examination tool. 

This was the actor's second annual visit to the CICU, ahead of his duties hosting the Miami Fashion Week gala, benefiting Nicklaus Children's Hospital and Banderas’ own foundation, Fundación Lágrimas y Favores.
