It was Mathaus’ Gifts pleasure to be a part of the celebration for Oncology Nurses appreciation week! The nurses were provided a retreat room to rest, rejuvenate and reflect, as well as provided a delicious meal of home smoked Owens BBQ. These women and men care so wonderfully for the children and families on the 4th floor at Dell Children’s Medical Center and the Children’s Blood and Cancer Center, CBCC in Austin. We are grateful for their dedication and care!
There are many challenges for families when their child is in the hospital receiving treatment for pediatric cancer and the side effect of that treatment. Children with pediatric cancer are frequently admitted to the hospital. During these admissions there are feelings of isolation, uncertainty of what the day will bring for your child and a roller coaster of emotions. Additionally, very often these common hospital stays place financial strain on the family; from loss of time at work by the parents, travel costs and food expenses. Mathaus’ Gifts goal is help with this strain by giving assistance for these expenses.
Thanks to your giving we were able to spread love from Mathaus’ Gifts to 10 families at our local Dell Children’s Medical Center!
We remember receiving financial gifts from Mathaus’ supporters, often right when we needed it the most. It is such a pleasure to pay forward this wonderful gift! Thank you Mathaus’ Gifts supporters for making this possible!
