Children's Health


Just before the wintery weather touched down in Dallas last week, we had the immense honor of presenting Children's Health with a donation of $32,478.04! Donations like this would not be possible without the support of our members, and we are SO thankful to those who participated in last year's BOO Yard Sign Challenge and the Skip a Payment program.
Hailey has been at the Cardiovascular Intensive Care unit at Children's Health for a few months now.

During the winter storm last week she told the nurses she had always wanted to have a snowball fight.
So they made it happen!!! (Even bundled up in a Frozen blanket!)

The staff said, “The smile on Hailey's face says it all. Her first snowball fight was a success! Our team members tell us it was a special, snowy day they'll never forget!”

Oh sweet Hailey, you are a heart warrior!!! Stay strong little one! We hope many more snowball fights are in your future.
