NEWS & EVENTS
Harrison's Heroes is having the teen ladies from Texas Crown Productions read the book, Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast: Mission Defrostable, to the children over at Texas Children's for their book nook. Each child will be given the book as well.
Harrison's Heroes is virtually bringing a Safari Expedition to Texas Children's and MD Anderson Hospitals. Unusual animals will be seen from the San Diego Zoo courtesy of Zoo Vargo. The kids will be provided a safari box filled with goodies. It will be a show to remember!
Our quarterly art therapy party with two special guests is going to take place. They will virtually teach the patients over at Texas Children's how to create a fun 4th of July craft. This should be an excellent event!
We have provided MD Anderson Pediatrics interactive sheets called Playtime Therapy Bedsheets. These sheets have over 60 fun interactive games on them. The patients are able to use washable markers, which we provide, and draw on the sheets. This is a first of it’s kind in any of the Houston children’s hospitals.
We have supplied Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital a teddy bear that hides the iv bag for children undergoing treatment. These teddy bears are called a Medi Teddy. These are important because they allow the children to relax and feel more comfortable during their treatment. Therefore, the children have a better experience.
In addition, Harrison’s Heroes is proud to supply the Children's Memorial Hospital with it’s first Scrapbooking Cart. This cart will go around to head trauma patients rooms and they will be able to make a scrapbook in hopes to help regain their memory. The cart will also be used for terminally ill patients to leave behind their legacy.
Lastly, we are excited to add an addition of a 3D Printer over at Texas Children’s Hospital. This 3D printer will work together with our studio and six mobile art carts to allow patients yet another choice in art therapy. Harrison’s Heroes is excited to extend our partnership in art therapy over at this hospital through this gift.
The Treatment Room at Shriners Hospital has
relocated to Galveston.
This treatment room services approximately 1,000 patients annually. It's used for different procedures such as IV starts, casting, lumbar punctures and other invasive treatments. Our goal is to provide a more inviting and kid-friendly atmosphere.
