Just some of the 23,000+ polymer clay hearts created by pediatrician Dr. Ron Lehocky, (known to his young patients as “Dockily Hockily” – but also answering to Docky-Hocky, Doctor Ron, and Doctor Little Hocky). He’s been working with special needs children since 1974. Sales of his unique hand-made heart brooches have raised over $100,000 for the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies in Louisville, Kentucky.
Happy Heart-o-Ween, my heart sisters! And remember that dark chocolate (well, okay, in moderation!) is good for our hearts!

What beautiful pins and a reminder to all of us that even when dealing with serious health concerns there is time for whimsy! I guess there is therapy in being light hearted!
There sure is! I just love these whimsical little pins, and the fact that this doctor has handmade thousands of them is especially moving.
What a wonderful thing this Doctor is doing! I wouldn’t mind purchasing a few of these towards a great cause!! Keep up the great and caring work, Doctor!! ♥
I’d love some of these too, June! They are available for sale around Louisville, but I guess he’s too busy being a pediatrician to have a mail order service! 😉
