Retired state senator Art Lentini gives back to Children's

Art Lentini, a State Senator for Jefferson Parish for 12-years, retired but continues to serve the public. Every Thursday Lentini spends quality time with young patients at Children’s Hospital.

10 year old Brandon Romero has Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and spent some time with Lentini during this WWL TV report.

“I like playing outside with my dad, but usually I can’t do that because I’m in here,” Brandon said. “So the highlight of his day—is this. They like come in our room and pump up us … I need to be motivated not to stay in bed all day.”
