This past week the kids were busy making colorful Valentine’s for family members, classmates and their favorite nurses and doctors. They even shared a little love with the  Tracy’s Kids art therapists!

We were the lucky recipients of a box of chocolates decorated by the siblings of one of our patients!

The Georgetown Hematology/Oncology staff  created a Valentine garland with “get- well- soon” notes to one of our patients who had to spend Valentine’s weekend in the hospital.

As we get ready for the Tracy’s Kids Red Carpet Fundraiser on February 25, we wanted to share with you the video our friends at Comcast made about last year’s event. It’s pretty awesome, including lots of behind-the-scenes video of the kids making their “Big Heads” for the music video.
