Hope and Remembrance is a life-sized statue commissioned through the group’s second Capital Campaign. Local sculptor Charles Parks created the bronze piece of art to honor our Oncology Children, including those who:
• lost their battle against cancer
• are currently on treatment
• fought and are now Cancer Survivors
May they never be forgotten!
Resource Books are specific cancer books that are requested by families are purchased by the CCCFD for the Oncology Social workers to distribute.
A salt water Fish Tank, located in the Hematology/Oncolgy clinic, offers a relaxing view for parents and children during a stressful time.
The 3C North Balcony was dedicated in October, 2001 through a parent-initiated Capital Campaign. The CCCFD exceeded its goal of raising $100,000 in donations to redesign and open a previously locked balcony. This provided children and their families some sunshine and fresh air just a short walk from their rooms. Giant sunflowers and other colorful plants brighten the flower boxes during the spring, summer, and fall months.
A Retractable Awning was installed on the balcony to protect our children from the direct sunlight. This provides shade for parents and children as they enjoy the outdoor air.
We provide the Gold Ribbon Pin to families, especially for "September is Childhood
Cancer Awareness month', to make others aware that Children Get Cancer, too.
