CLEVELAND -  Some of the area’s “Top Cops” were on “special assignment” inside a Cleveland hospital Monday. Their mission: to spread some cheer.

Special agents with the Cleveland Division of the FBI partnered with A Special Wish Foundation to visit young patients at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital.

They weren’t looking for any bad guys, just looking to put a smile on a child’s face.  In addition to the bedside conversations, they gave the children a small teddy bear and some other special FBI gifts.

Paige Holm, 9, of Lorain got a blue bear with the word “strength” on it.  “I like this one because I can carry it around and I can remember this day.  And, it reminds me to have strength even when I am hurting or something," she said.

The FBI agents spent several hours at the hospital and made visits to about thirty children.   A Special Wish Foundation grants wishes of Cleveland area children, up to age 20, with life-threatening illnesses.
