A medic that worked to save the lives of 2 young children suffering from stab wounds in November will host them and their mother for Christmas. Prince George’s County Medic Lieutenant Pamela J. Graham became friends with the family immediately following their ordeal that occurred on Dennis Court in District Heights. The brothers, ages 2 and 3, and their mother will join Graham at her home on Christmas morning in hopes of bringing joy and peace to the family.
