Over forty members of Student Council and National Honor Society helped host a special holiday party for Keyser Family Pediatric Cancer Center patients and their families on December 1, 2017.
Student volunteers, all dressed as Spartan Elves in red and green, assisted with food service, craft tables, and dancing. Additional entertainment was provided by Impulse Entertainment DJs, Tom Repetny as photo booth operator, as well as professional photographers on hand to take candid shots for families. The highlight of the evening was the arrival of Santa himself who took photos with the children and listened to holiday wishes before returning to the North Pole.
According to the website, the Keyser Family Pediatric Cancer Center at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn is an 8,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility developed to deliver high quality outpatient care in a comfortable and healing environment. The physicians and team there are dedicated to the mission of treating all children with pediatric cancer and hematologic diseases with the goal of cure. The Keyser Center assures that all children, their families and loved ones are cared for from the moment they enter Hope Hospital and throughout the transition to adult medical care.
