Mercy's 6th Birthday Party at Angel's Playground

Mercy is a little girl who has spent a lot of time in hospitals since a car accident 4 years ago. She first met the 501st Legion during a hospital visit, where Darth Vader encouraged her to continue wearing a breathing mask that she needed to help her lungs work properly. Since then, her family has developed a relationship with the club, which sent several characters out, including Darth Vader and our R2-D2. The party was held at a wheelchair-accessible playground called Angels' Playground in Costa Mesa. Mercy, her family and friends thoroughly enjoyed all the attention they got from the Star Wars characters.
