Our morning at Texas Children's Clinic was filled with so much laughter that all our cheeks hurt from all the smiling and laughing. We interacted with 22 girls and 12 boys. They were so excited to see us! After the flooding that Houston has faced from Harvey, this event was very special to me and my volunteers and I do believe the kids really appreciated the distraction. Today has been an absolute pleasure and I truly appreciate being a part of this organization.

Our Nashville chapter director spent her birthday hosting a hospital visit!
Today was Northern NY’s first For a Day party! It was a huge success and there are no words to describe the reaction I witnessed. In attendance were my wonderful volunteers; Myself, Jordynn Barnhart, Melissa, Kane, Amanda Wall, Cathy Renner and Patti Gomez. Patti was our special guest as Mrs. Syracuse and made a huge impact on the children. In total, we saw 8 girls and 7 boys.
As usual, great success with this event. The kids were a little more rambunctious than usual but we had fun entertaining them before bedtime. We read the entire story time book! Snow White, Cinderella, and Superman were in attendance.
Our first hospital visit for the Pittsburgh chapter! Photo booths brought smiles and silly poses for the patients celebrating their final day of radiation!
