This week, patients from the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center kicked off the 2010 Valentine season with a special Valentine-making party in the Robin Bush Child and Adolescent Clinic. With glue, glitter and lots of paper, the kids made their own Valentines and signed Children's Art Project Valentine cards to give to adult patients at M. D. Anderson. The Valentines were later distributed to adult patients by the Department of Volunteer Services.
 
The Children's Art Project hosted the event, celebrating its 2010 Valentine collection while also meeting new Valentine designers. The designers are all undergoing treatment for cancer in the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson, and the artwork they create is often featured on the products produced and sold by the Children's Art Project. Since 1973, the art project has returned more than $27 million to the cancer center to support such programs as the education and child life programs, college scholarships, summer camps, pedi parties and other activities.


 
Children's Art Project Valentines are available for purchase at area grocery stores, retail locations, M. D. Anderson gift shops and the Children's Art Project Boutique in Uptown Park. They are also available online at www.childrensart.org or by calling (800) 231-1580.

This is such a fantastic and effective way to raise money for cancer research and programs that will benefit those living a life with cancer. The children get to escape their worries for a little while and focus on sharing nothing but their love and attention with someone they adore, and it keeps their minds off their awful diagnosis. It lets them escape reality for awhile, and we all know how important that is for anyone in order to stay sane. And the fact that the money raised goes toward cancer programs, as well as scholarships and other activities that the children will benefit from, is simply phenomenal. It's a great way to make every angle of the project productive.
