Dell Children's Hospital Teen Room
Our latest project is to focus on teens who are battling cancer! We are funding a teen room at Dell Children's Hospital. The purpose is for a place of relaxation for teens to hang out when they are isolated due to suppressed immune systems and under treatment. It will be used as a quiet room for teens to relax as well as a space for Child Life to have events for teenagers to socialize. Click below to see the progress!
A Link Between Families and Care
The Mark Felice Foundation is supporting a social worker connecting resources to those going between The Blood & Cancer Clinic and Dell Children's Hospital. The social worker focuses on patients and their families so that there is no disconnect between the Clinic and the Hospital. The goal is that parents can stay focused on their children's wellness while someone is looking out for the family's needs during the process.
"Helping families along the journey of childhood cancer and blood disorders is a special opportunity. Families face such difficult circumstances and my job is to help make that a little easier and allow them to focus on the care and love of their child. The philanthropic support that allowed my position to be created is a gift that has a ripple effect. Thank you for your support." - Carmen Gattis

Emergency Relief Fund
The emergency relief fund was a yearly fund given so that social workers, doctors, and nurses could identify specific needs of patients and their families. These families could then receive aid in order to solve problems so that they could focus on their children's health. Money has been given to many different areas not covered by insurance. We have given money for medications, beds to come home to recuperate, shoes, and lunch money after long days in the clinic.
