Birthday Parties

Each patient is remembered at TCF with a special present to mark a birthday. We have had many children share their own birthdays by collecting presents for our kids. Party paper goods, cake, gifts and favors would make the day very special for our patients.

“We had our birthday party at the movies and asked guests to bring a present for a TCF patient.”

-Brooke and Brianna, age 6
