Cedars-Sinai had some special visitors this holiday season when Rams defensive back Cody Davis, guard Rodger Saffold and mascot Rampage stopped by to spread some holiday cheer earlier this week.

To make the season a little brighter, Davis, Saffold and Rampage visited the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Oncology to meet patients who are being treated at Cedars-Sinai. Davis, Saffold and Rampage met with patients and families and even took selfies with patients, some of whom are spending the holidays at the hospital.

“To have the Rams players come to Cedars-Sinai and donate their time meant so very much to the children in pediatrics. We care for children and their families in a time of vulnerability and part of our ‘care plan’ is play and smiles,” explained Courtnay Caufield, Associate Director of the Cedars-Sinai Department of Pediatrics. “Helping children and their families focus on things that make them smile or feel as if they are still able maintain part of their usual routine is helpful with comfort and enhances their healing. The Rams organization and players showed us that they value promoting healing through smiles as much as we do. Our staff and our children thank the Rams players for bringing a ray of light into their day.”

The Los Angeles Rams players, cheerleaders, mascot Rampage and staff have been working to make the holiday season a little brighter this year by supporting several holiday events in the Los Angeles region. The Rams have teamed up with various community partners to host holiday parties, serve meals and provide holiday gifts for local youth and families, impacting more than 2,000 people, including 1,300 children.
