Kids at the facility gave out valentine flowers and gifts as part of raising awareness on cancer in kids.
Organizers of the event are seeking to pass information to parents to take their kids for regular check-ups.
If diagnosed early, cases of cancers in kids can be handled and cured as opposed to when they are discovered in later stages.
