We would like to introduce you to a project benefiting oncology patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
Many children diagnosed with cancer throughout the Rocky Mountain Region receive treatment (in patient and out patient) at Children’s Hospital Colorado Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
The Association of Volunteers sponsors an annual Holiday Card Project that benefits children undergoing treatment in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. The project is made possible through the generous sponsorship of community businesses throughout metro Denver.
The Holiday Card Project offers an opportunity for patients (ages 6-18) to express their creativity as budding artists while undergoing treatment.
Cards are sold during the holiday season and all the proceeds go to The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
The Project Timeline

Child Life Specialists work with patients to create their drawings of what the holiday season means to them
The hospital public (staff & parents) vote for their 3 favorite artist drawings
Sponsors attend an Open House so representatives can select the artist drawing they wish to sponsor for the holiday season
