On Friday, August 9th (on what turned out to be National Book Lovers Day!!) we dedicated our very special, long-awaited project at the brand new Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Inova Schar Institute, Kate’s Book Nook! (Click the link to watch the video!)
Over a year in the making, this space was a dream come true for us as we sought to find a permanent place where Kate’s spirit could shine through and continue giving back to this community of pediatric cancer families.
With the help of countless people from the clinic, Inova Children’s Hospital and beyond, we are thrilled to share that the Book Nook officially openes tomorrow and that patients and their families will be welcomed to snuggle up and read over 550 titles donated by YOU, Kate’s Cause supporters. We have books for all ages, books about special needs and big subjects like cancer and surgery. We have books in braile, books in Spanish and books about different cultures and parts of the world.
Our celebration was made complete by presenting a check for $10,000 to Inova Children’s Hospital to our very own Doctors Lawlor and Dulman.
We are so proud to dedicate this space to our Kate, who loved books from the time she could sit still.
KitKat, we love you. Until we read again…
