Morgan LaRue Turns 9!

What a great reminder of why we do what we do!

Sweet little Morgan LaRue is currently a cancer patient at Texas Children's Hospital and has been doing her very best to stay strong. Her social worker and Child Life Specialist at Texas Children's contacted HFC about planning a surprise party for Morgan's 9th birthday at the hospital and boy was it worth it!

Morgan's loves bar-b-que, so we had tons of it there, along with a Magician, balloons, cake, ice cream and her whole clan of cousins (who got to play hookie that day from school). When Morgan walked into the decorated "teen room" at TXCH, and saw everything and everybody who was there to celebrate her special day, she was beyond surprised and excited! Her smile was priceless!

Pictures tell a much better story than I do... Happy 9th Birthday Morgan LaRue!
