AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Santa Claus was seen at an Augusta hospital Tuesday morning, making sure every kid at the Children's Medical Center had a Merry Christmas.

Santa brought toys to all the boys and girls spending the holidays being treated, including Rashod Boyd, who has been in the hospital for several days with an obstruction in his bowel.

Rashod forgot all about his pain, medicine and the tubes running from his body as soon as he heard "ho ho ho."

"It's been a rough week, but when Santa comes around, he makes things a lot lighter. He got a lot of good gifts," said his father, Nelson Curry.

All your contributions to the Children's Miracle Network helped fund Santa's visit.

Remember, you can catch the Children's Miracle Network Telethon on News12 every year. The 2013 fundraiser is scheduled for this June.
