Elissa El-Tayib flits into the room like a little butterfly. Her winning smile belies the fact that she has been treated for cancer for a year and a half, but it also hints at her many talents. Elissa was born in Syria; her heritage also has a Russian influence. Her dad grew up in New Jersey and studied medicine in the Ukraine. Her mom is a native of Syria. Perhaps it is this rich cultural heritage that has encouraged her interests. She loves to learn! Her parents say that she asks a million questions every day! She writes her own songs, but she has also participated in a competition singing “Home On The Range”! She was given a rocking horse while she was in the Children’s Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center — and that’s when “Home On The Range” became her favorite song. She also loves reading and is a whiz with video games. How can a child with cancer have time for so many activities? The answer is simple: children are children first, cancer patients second. That zest for life is the reason the Children’s Art Project works so hard to provide a variety of programs that help the children deal with their cancer treatment and prepare to grow into successful adults: K Summer camps (Camp Star Trails and Camp A.O.K. — for Anderson’s Older Kids) are

more than a week of fun with friends, with medical personnel quietly in the background. It’s a time when young patients and their siblings can spread their wings and develop a bit of independence, try new activities and forget they are fighting cancer. K The Children’s Cancer Hospital is so full of life! In addition to the in-hospital

classrooms, CAP funds the Creative Arts Program that brings music, art and creative writing into the lives of all our young patients. K The Child Life staff works with patients and their parents to explain what’s

happening. With their special dolls, they can show a tiny child where his organs are and what will happen in specific tests. They also plan days when the children can pretend they are the doctors, and their doctors are the patients. It’s a wonderful role reversal! K You can read about all the programs

CAP funds on our Web site at www.childrensart.org/programs. And remember — your purchase from this catalog helps us fund all these programs. Thank you for your support!

The charming new book, Our Shadow Garden, is the gift of landscape designer Cherie Foster Colburn to the children at M. D. Anderson’s Cancer Center Hospital. The book blends the artwork of our pediatric patients with Ms. Colburn’s story line and adds information about nocturnal creatures and plants. The delightful scenario will captivate children and adults, enhanced by the colorful artwork of the children. It’s a great bedtime story!
