Physical therapy patient says thank you with magic

by Rik Cryderman, Supervisor, Pastoral Care, Beaumont Hospital, Troy

It was pure magic when Kathy Oppedisano, a retired Utica elementary school teacher, celebrated the completion of her rehabilitation at Beaumont Hospital, Troy by entertaining staff and patients with her amazing talents – as a magician.

With slight of hand, this modern-day Merlin made candy appear in an empty bowl, transformed the blank pages of a coloring book into technicolor images and turned a few scarves and stars into Old Glory.

Kathy wowed the audience and said thank you for her stay. The only trick the staff didn’t want her to perform was to disappear! It was evident why she was such a popular teacher. On this day, children young and old found wonder in her magic.
