Crowned Miss Miracle queens visited Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital on Sunday to share Valentine's Day cheer with some young patients.

The pageant queens went through the NICU and pediatric care units on Sunday, passing out valentines to several patients, in hopes of brightening their day.

Officials with the event say that holiday's can be the most difficult time to be in the hospital and it's more important than ever to get out and show these kids that they're loved throughout the community.

Each child the girls visited was given a valentine, and plenty of visitors to keep them company throughout the day.
