MD Anderson patients, employees and visitors helped us raise awareness for #childhoodcancer by creating pots of gold today. Art teacher Lisa Sitz developed this project to inspire public support of pediatric cancer patients and childhood cancer research. She hopes that these little pots, which will be painted gold and garnished with a ribbon before they''re taken home, will serve as a reminder to donate blood or teach others about cancer over the next year. #cancer #cancersucks #houston #kids #childhoodcancerawareness #pottery #art #mdanderson #hospital #endcancer

Our 20,000 employees are resilient and dedicated. Though we see countless examples of this every day, it was especially true during and after Hurricane Harvey. Many of our employees persevered in the face of adversity, some working around the clock to care for our patients even as their own homes flooded. To show our gratitude for our employees extraordinary dedication and unparalleled teamwork, MD Anderson hosted an appreciation event today. Thank you for all you do to help us#endcancer every day, rain or shine. #cancer #cancersucks #employees #houstonstrong #texasstrong #texas #gratitude #thankful #mdandersonstrong #hurricaneharvey #mdanderson #houston #hospital #endcancer

As an assistant professor of Radiation Physics here at MD Anderson, Julianne Pollard-Larkin is committed to our mission to #endcancer. But shes just as passionate about showing children just how much fun science can be. She makes time to talk with kids touring the hospital as part of MD Andersons Health Adventures Program, and she also passes on the life lessons shes learned to disadvantaged children who may not realize what theyre capable of achieving. Shes even dressed as Princess Leia while discussing careers in medical physics during Science Night at MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School. I want every child I come across to know they have this innate potential, she says. If you want it, then put the work behind it, and you can achieve it. You dont let anything sidetrack you. #cancer #cancersucks #learn #education #study #starwars #princessleia #doctor #physics #maytheforcebewithyou #houston #hospital #mdanderson #endcancer

Kate Arnold knows first-hand how difficult the stem cell transplant process can be. To make it easier, the non-Hodgkins lymphoma survivor wanted to keep a sense of humor, so she used the time in the hospital to watch funny TV shows and movies. And she named her IV pole Sheeba. I insisted she have a name, Kate says. I dont know how I came up with Sheeba. It just seemed fitting. Kate also pinned all the letters and cards she received from family and friends to the walls of her hospital room so she wouldnt feel so isolated. By the time I was discharged, the walls in my hospital room were covered, she said. It was just so uplifting to know that so many people were thinking about me. #cancer #cancersucks #cancersurvivor #survivor #humor #cards #support #hospital #houston #mdanderson #endcancer
