AMARILLO -- The Shriners spent some time in Amarillo to check in on patients here in the panhandle.
Twice a year, doctors and nurses from the Shriners Hospital in Houston come to Amarilloto see kids being treated in our area.
The event is organized for two reasons:
One, so that the patients don't have to make a trip to Houston;
And secondly, so that they can take their minds off of being treated if even for a short time.
