Tracy’s Kids 2017 Annual Report and Audit

Our Tracy’s Kids 2017 Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements are here!  Read the stories of our bright, brave patients and the work of our incredible art therapists.

“[The Tracy’s Kids art therapy room] was the guiding light and force for me to keep fighting for my baby when all I wanted to do was cry. I wanted [my son] to be one of those kids playing in that art room, a ‘normal’ kid having a childhood.” — a young patient’s mom at Children’s National Medical Center

This picture shows an impromptu preschool ‘graduation’ that Tracy’s Kids art therapists organized for a patient’s sister.  Because of her brother’s cancer treatment schedule, she was going to miss her school’s promotion ceremony — but our art therapists made the situation better with a tailor-made graduation with “all her favorite people” attending.

Holiday Giving 101: How You Can Help Provide Art Therapy to Children with Cancer

Every day, our Master’s-trained art therapists help young cancer patients and their families navigate an exceedingly difficult chapter in their lives. Our work is only possible because of supporters like you. This giving season, there are many ways you can give children with the cancer the gift of art therapy.
