Cancer and Hematology Centers receive donation from regional foundation

Sky High, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating pediatric cancer, made a generous donation of $725,000 to Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers during a Christmas Carnival the organization hosted on the 14th floor of Wallace Tower for cancer and hematology patients and their families.

“Days like today keep us doing what we do,” said Brittany Hebert, the founder and chief executive officer of Sky High, which raises funds by hosting a variety of events including concerts, golf tournaments and sporting clay tournaments. “We are happy to here and be able to help.”

Dr. ZoAnne Dreyer, an oncologist with the Cancer Center, said the money donated by Sky High will go toward developing a tumor biology lab and will undoubtedly play a significant role is helping research and treat childhood cancer.

“We are so appreciative of your generosity,” Dreyer told Hebert and her team of elves who helped secure the donation and who made the Christmas Carnival a hit with patients and families. “We are privileged to have a relationship with such a great organization.”

Texas Children’s Physician-In-Chief Dr. Mark W. Kline echoed Dreyer’s comments and said that he too is proud to be a part of Sky High, an organization dedicated to such a noble cause.
