PHOENIX -- Medical students from Carrington College in Phoenix spent weeks preparing for a special surprise Tuesday that turned out to be very heartfelt.

The students worked to be part of the Heart Pillow Project, which aims to raise awareness of congenital heart defects. As part of the program, the students head to PCH to hand out plush heart pillows to heart patients.

"It's touching to see them get so involved, just to know they care is very special," said Gina Seideman. "She loves the attention and gifts."

Seidman's daughter, 17-year-old Sedona, is a patient at Phoenix Children's Hospital. Although unable to say how happy she was to receive a pink heart pillow, her expression made it clear that she was pleased with the students who brought the homemade pillows.
