Every once in a while we are fortunate enough to witness the results of wonderful acts of kindness performed by individuals around the world. This holiday season was no exception with students from Williams High School in Plano, Texas visiting patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.
From One Child to Another
The students from Williams High School were Peer Assistance and Leadership members who arrived at the hospital to offer the experience of making holiday crafts to children who were recuperating from surgery. The process of returning to full strength after surgery can be difficult, and the craft workshop that the high school students set up in the hospital’s recreation room was a perfect way to help the patients say focused on positive things. The students greatly enjoyed the experience, cherishing the memories and friendships they made during the process.
A Special Hospital
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has long since been a haven where children from all backgrounds could receive the medical care they needed. Started in 1921 by Texas Masons who wanted to treat children with polio, regardless of the resources the children’s families possessed, TRSRC is now a leading pediatric orthopedic center that has treated more than 210,000 children.
Countless families owe the health, of their children to the caring, selfless caregivers of TSRHC. TSRHC is a leader in the medical community in a number of areas, all revolving around the health and well-being of anyone under 18 years of age. Whether children are in need of prosthetics or treatment for scoliosis, TSRHC is able to provide the best medical care regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.
