“Who Ya Gonna Call” New All-Girl Cast of Ghostbusters Visits Kids in Hospital

Tuesday August 4, 2015    6:56 AM

A Boston children's hospital is guaranteed "phantom-free" after the cast of the new "Ghostbusters" film showed up to cheer up kids.

The movie is shooting in Boston and the the staff at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center posted signs in the windows with the original movie's signature line, "Who ya gonna call?"

The all-female ensemble of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones showed up with ghost traps and proton packs. They checked closets and under beds not so much to ease patients' worries about ghosts but their doldrums about being stuck in hospital beds.

"That was wonderful of them to take the time to put a smile on my son's face." Valerie Lynn wrote in a comment after the hospital posted pictures with her son with the Ghostbusters. "He's been through so much in his battle against Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This was good for his morale and very appreciated."
