Lacie Hietalati gave birth to a baby daughter just recently and she also got one of this amazing personalized blankets. During their two-week check up visit, Dr. Bostrom welcomed them with a smile and the unique gift. Lacie was surprised because she didn’t expect for a doctor to do such a lovely thing. 

It’s amazing how he finds the time to sew all those blankets by himself knowing he has lots of patients and a busy schedule. But we guess that when you love something so much, nothing is impossible. 

Dr. Bostrom’s generosity is truly unique. We all agree that we need more people like him in this world who would make us feel like the most special people or patients. Way to go Dr. Bostrom, you are our hero.
