Creating A Healing Place

For Hospitalized Pediatric and Young Adult Patients

The Founding Story

It began at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, when mother-daughter duo, Susan and Kendall Plank, were asked to do something for JB, a family member's friend who was scheduled to be admitted to the hospital for at least 3 weeks, away from his family and friends in Austin, TX.

Susan and Kendall decided they wanted to do something to make JB's stay more comfortable. They learned that JB's interests were all things Texas Longhorn, and the Planks shopped around town to customize a comforting, colorful, cozy burnt oranged colored room for JB.
