Valley Children's Hospital gets a special Easter surprise

Sirens had a sweet meaning Friday morning as they helped lead The Easter Bunny along with Fresno and Clovis first responders through the doors and into the halls of Valley Children's Hospital to deliver stuffed animals and toys to patients of all ages.

Alfredo "Freddy" Zamora III has been in the hospital off and on his entire life. But Friday, he left all of those thoughts behind.

"The Easter bunny gave me the bunny!" he exclaimed.

"Our visit this week was for an infection so we will be here for 15 days until his antibiotic is complete," said Alfredo's Mother Jazmin Gonzalez.

Alfredo and his family spend many holidays in the hospital. His mom says his smile today is what the whole family needed.

"It's an amazing feeling that he's still smiling. Even if we're here he still has a smile on his face. It's awesome to see my son smile," said Gonzalez.

Dressed as a bunny, Fresno Police Officer Craig Howard said Friday was all about bringing the children joy.

"It brings tears to your eyes to sit here and talk about it. It brings tears to you. You know in your heart you're doing something good for people that's why you're doing this job," said Howard.
