Another great year — thanks to you, Houston!
The funds raised this year benefited the Harris Health System CAPES Program
When a loved one is diagnosed with a life threatening illness, monumental change occurs within the family unit, and the children within the family are impacted significantly. As stated by Dr. Kehl, “the underserved population in a public hospital system faces a multitude of challenges, and a cancer diagnosis has the potential to destabilize the lives not just of our patients but of their families.” Fortunately, The Harris Health System has the Children of Adult Patients Enduring Stressors (CAPES) program. It is designed to maximize families’ ability to cope with stressors impacting their lives by providing evidence-based psychosocial support to children of adult patients, while empowering family members with the tools needed to assist children through difficult medical experiences.
Through the help of our generous donors, we are able to continue providing families with these invaluable support services at Ben Taub Hospital, Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital and Outpatient Center, Quentin Mease Hospital, and Smith Clinic. Please join our cause to raise funds to continue to support CAPES: Children of Adult Patients Enduring Stressors.
