On Wednesday, I sat in a Executive Committee meeting for City ArtWorks and learned that our funding was almost completely dry for a program that is dear to my heart - bedside theraputic art sessions for kids in the Cancer, Hematology, and Bone Marrow Transplant and Renal units at Texas Children's Hospital. I have been on the board as a volunteer for the last 6 years, and this is the first time I have heard that we may need to shut the program down. At that moment, I said, for my birthday this year, I will try to raise enough money to cover June. We have enough money to get through May of this year, and I am hoping that if I can raise enough money to cover June, we will have enough time to find another funding source to continue this program. I have never had a child in my life with cancer, and I cannot even imagine it. These kids need an opportunity to still be kids, even though they are stuck in a hospital. Please help if you can. Any amount at all would be a huge help. Thank you!
