Why is October 12, 2013 Going to be a Fabulous Day?
Our 3rd annual “Houston Stars: Dancing for a Cause” will be held Saturday, October 12. We have lots of wonderful dancers lined up to entertain you and compete for your votes.
“At Halo House, we are so much more than individuals in apartments- we are a community. Here, at our social event, we share experiences, compassion, and food!”
Megan, Halo House Volunteer
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to all of you who have been a part of making Halo House possible. We could not have done this without your generous support, your “hands-on” help, and your great ideas.
Houston Chef Launches the “Hippo Kitchen”
Natural Foods Chef Angela Anderson creates healing foods focused on cancer recovery. Named after the Hippocratic oath taken by medical professionals, the Hipo Kitchen donated and delivered meals to our Halo House guests in March. For more information visit www.thehippokitchen.com
Halo House is a non-profit organization serving children and adults with blood cancers leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, during the time the patient must reside in proximity to the Texas Medical Center in Houston. Halo House provides fully-furnished apartments where the patient and their family or caregiver can stay while receiving active treatment.
We are currently providing housing in apartments we lease, but our long term goal is to purchase our own 12 to 20 unit apartment complex in 2015. We believe that owning a dedicated facility for patients and caregivers will enable us to provide housing at a low, sustainable, operating cost. Your donation will help us reach our goal!
Heartfelt thanks to our wonderful volunteers, donors, and the dozens of people who have made Halo House a reality, including the Clements High School soccer team, who donated food for the Halo House apartments, and these other special people:
Your generous contributions go towards helping the thousands of people with cancer who may not otherwise be able to receive treatment. Halo House appreciates every contribution, both big and small.
