Get a jump start on your holiday shopping. Look for the September catalog with more to come!


You twitter and email, send photos via phone, blog, text and check your Facebook for the latest messages. The Children’s Art Project at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is doing the same — tweeting, blogging, keeping up with lots of customers via Facebook, and expanding our website. We love to hear from you! There is excitement in this instant communication — and once we start, we can’t do without it. Remember, though, it’s not the only way to touch base with your friends. This season you can slow down and send a more personal holiday greeting to family, friends and business associates — one that doesn’t fade away on a digital screen. It’s tangible and your message can be looked at over and over. Send a holiday card from the Children’s Art Project! They come in a variety of sizes and designs to fit your holiday expectations. You will also find our photo cards in this catalog, and who doesn’t love to see how your family has grown in the past year? Your photos can print digitally right on the card, eliminating tape, glue, buying dozens of copies of one photo and the time it takes you to put cards and photos together. We can also personalize your cards, printing your name inside the card and your address on the back flap of the envelope. This season send a special and lasting message to your friends, along with your support for the Children’s Art Project to make life better for children with cancer.

Dalvin Blanchard has a special guardian angel. A 16-year-old junior at Willow Ridge High School in Houston, Texas, Dalvin may not have always known that this person was an angel. The transformation happened very quickly. Last year Dalvin was just a typical teenager, focused on his grades at school, girls and football. He played running back, wide receiver and strong safety, working toward a successful sophomore season. During practice one day, he hurt his leg and couldn’t run. His coach sent him to a specialist to check out the injury. The answer was worse than a pulled muscle or broken leg. Dalvin had rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue tumor. That’s when his guardian angel showed up. Dalvin’s brother, Lesley, is 14 years older than Dalvin. Lesley took over as Dalvin’s caretaker and guardian angel so his parents could continue to work and maintain their insurance on Dalvin. The change in their relationship has been a bonus for both. Dalvin is no longer the “little kid” who was sometimes an annoyance, and Lesley is no longer the distant, grown-up big brother. They have become close friends and enjoy doing many things together. Dalvin missed the football season his sophomore year, but he continued his interest in the game. He and Lesley play “Madden NFL 10”, a video football game. He is also into rap music, texting his friends and driving. Lesley helped him get his learner’s permit last May. His favorite subjects at school are English Language Arts, reading and computer classes. He loves pizza with everything on it. Oh — and those girls. He still loves them! With that guardian angel watching over his every move, Dalvin is headed for a normal life where he can achieve all that he dreams to be.

Olivia Palacios will capture your heart with her sunny smile. She is a tiny young lady who is just 5 years old, but size and age have little to do with Olivia’s charming persona. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) when she was only 3. Her mother Rebecca says Olivia has responded very well to all her treatments. She is now on maintenance and should be through with treatment by the end of 2010. One bonus is that after losing all her hair during this process, Olivia has grown “new hair.” This huge bump in the road of her life seems to have had little effect on Olivia’s development as a healthy, happy, normal child. Her manners are lovely! She is a budding artist who is fond of drawing and painting (pink is her favorite color, with purple coming in at a close second). During our photo session, she asked to have her pencil sharpened so she could make her lines darker and sharper. She has great fine muscle control and strong little hands, so she can stay in the lines when she is coloring and make the colors dark. She also writes her name beautifully. Olivia enjoys many activities. In addition to her favorites — gymnastics and shopping — Olivia also loves to go to the movies. Her mother says a career as a movie critic may be in her future. Her favorite movie right now is “Flushed Away.” She also has the ability to focus! She can run all the remotes in the house and manage her mom’s cell phone — or maybe that’s a skill that comes naturally to 5-year-olds! With the support of her great family — dad Sonny, mom Rebecca, sister Brianna, 13, and brother Caleb, 2 — and her extended family and friends, Olivia is already dancing toward tomorrow!
