TDF sponsor’s monthly Munch and Mingles for parents with patients at Children’s

Today was the first monthly Munch and Mingle we will be hosting at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute. All families on A-5 not just Dragonfly registered families are invited for a free lunch (NO BIG SPEECH INVOLVED!). CCHMC has been doing this for awhile, but we just started sponsoring the events on a monthly basis. It was nice to be there and be able to talk with the families. Some of the newly registered families were excited to be able to put a face with a Dragonfly voice or name.

One family there today has been inpatient for 144 days straight, they are cancer-free, but the aftermath/effects of chemo are keeping them there.

Another family who spoke broken English said clearly ” We love Dragonfly, you help us so much, Thank you!”

It was wonderful to be able to see the families get out of their rooms, talk, eat a good meal from Servatii’s Restaurant, and just connect a bit. Hopefully, we brought some Comfort and Joy to their day.
