On December 14th two Miami Children's Hospital (MCH) doctors hung up their white physician coats, put away their stethoscopes, and pulled out magic wands and their magical capes. Dr. Andrew S. Labbie, pediatric urologist, and Dr. Gaston de Cardenas, Chief of Otolaryngology, transformed into “The Amazing Andy” and “The Great Gaston.” Both magicians performed for the children of MCH at the annual magic show in the hospital main playroom and around the MCH Cancer Center.
The talented duo have been practicing and performing magic professionally for many years. “It’s difficult for a child to be hospitalized during the holiday season and I wanted to bring a little magic into their day,” said Dr. Labbie.
