A Successful Voyage for the Children's "Passport" Program!
(Click on pictures to enlarge.)
On Tuesday, August 5th our young members of HNC and their families joined together for the Children's Passport Program at Jillian's in Charlotte. During the evening, the group was treated to delicious food and drink along with great entertainment (really, it was very educational but shhh... don't tell the kids!).
Dr. Paulette Bryant and Alisha Davis, both of the Presbyterian Blume Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Clinic in Charlotte, did an outstanding job in explaining about the care and treatment of bleeding disorders with a variety of fun, interactive games and sing-a-longs. They even showed us how to make Blood Soup – yum! The staff of Hemophilia Health Services then showed everyone the proper steps for infusion. The kids had a blast learning everything about their bleeding disorder and earned stamps in their passports for each activity. At the end, the kids showed their completed passports and received a game card good to play the arcade games at Jillian's.
Our many thanks to Megan Mauk (HNC Region South Coordinator), Dr. Paulette Bryant, Alisha Davis, Sue and Allen Heafner and Hemophilia Health Services for coordinating a terrific program for the Charlotte region.
We look forward to many more events in this area. If anyone would like to be involved in the planning for this region, please contact HNC at (800)990-5557 (toll free) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
