Not as a means of comparsion, but as a possible resource to assist you, my group, the 501st Central California Garrison, has a lot of experience in conducting children's hospital visits at Sacramento Suttern Memorial. Some of my members who attend come from the Modesto area. We even have the occasional jedi knight and rebel freedom fighter.
