ABC’s General Hospital will feature a special storyline for the second year in a row involving Shriners Hospital for Children. Here’s a sneak peek of the episodes airing the week of February 29, 2016.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason’s (Billy Miller) son Jake (James Nigbor) is injured after being hit by a car, it’s recommended that he see an orthopedic specialist at Shriners Hospitals for Children. In a story that will challenge the strength of a mother struggling to hold it together in the face of crisis, Jake will be visited by those he loves, including his brothers Aiden (Jason David), Danny (Braiden/Dylan Kazowski) and Cameron (Michael Leone); grandmother Monica (Leslie Charleson) and uncle Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) as he recovers from his ordeal.

The official kickoff for the storyline began in today’s February 16 episode, and will continue over the next couple of weeks.
