May 9, 2010: Comer/COSI
We examined two organizations with unique focuses on children's health.
First we talked about Comer Children's Hospital at the University of Chicago which is a state-of-the-art children's hospital. Its' teams of pediatric experts use advanced diagnostic and medical techniques to care for children of all ages. We also highlighted the upcoming Disney/Pixar preview screening of Toy Story 3 to support groundbreaking research and distinctive patient care. Visit www.uchicagokidshospital.org.
Children's Oncology Services, Inc. (COSI) believes that a diagnosis of cancer should not prevent a child from experiencing the simple joys of childhood. From its inception it has been volunteer-driven, relying on more than 350 volunteers (including many former campers) to plan and operate a wide portfolio of camping, recreational and educational programs for children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer. From the popular two-week Summer Camp, which now serves nearly 300 children, to skiing excursions and education programs, COSI is a leader in providing empowering and fun experiences to young people facing cancer.
