"I think it will be long lasting," he said. "We'll have a great relationship, and it will continue beyond me."
For Cristo-DePaul, giving these ducks to the children adds to the many acts of kindness she does for the children. With her therapy dog, Goldilocks, she visits the children at least once a month and every Easter.
"The kids just go crazy over the dog," she said. "And I'm able to pass out toys, huggable pillows and hats."
Now with the ducks, she said she is able to bring them more happiness. So through the joy of music and covering their heads with hats when the kids lose their hair, she hopes the ducks bring them happiness until they are cured.
"Hopefully we have enough ducks until they get rid of cancer," she said.""
