Houston Children’s Charity has pledged a gift in the amount of $1,000,000 to establish the Houston Children’s Charity Family Emergency Fund at Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
This fund is used exclusively for the fulfillment of the needs of the children and the families of children under treatment in Texas Children’s Cancer Center. It is administered by the Texas Children’s Hospital Supportive Care Program. This fund pays for items such as meals, parking, clothing, shoes and any other specific needs not otherwise fulfilled by other available programs.
In addition, a matching gift of $1,050,000 was executed in 2006 in honor of Lester and Sue Smith. The combined commitment of $2,050,000 will help fund the important efforts of Dr. David Poplack and his team at the Children’s Cancer Center.
