Bond Given Award At St. Louis Children’s Hospital

Former Senator Christopher “Kit” Bond of Mexico picked up an award from SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center Monday. Cardinal Glennon President Sherlyn Hailstone says Bond got the Crystal Wagon award thanks to his over 40 years support for the state’s children. The award was presented to Bond at the hospital in St. Louis . Hailstone says in 2011, Bond sponsored one-million-dollars in federal funding to allow the hospital to open the area’s only pediatric hybrid cardiac catheterization suite. The Crystal Wagon is the hospital’s highest reward. Past recipients include Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and former Missouri Governor Matt Blunt.
