In partnership with Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF) and Project 150, Summerlin Hospital Medical Center opened a reimagined nourishment room on the pediatric oncology floor, inspired by TRF warrior, Delilah Juarez.
TRF and Project 150 donated and delivered bags of favorite snacks to stock the nourishment room, which offers patients and family members easy access to their favorite foods while in the hospital. Chemotherapy treatments can impact patient’s food preferences, and parents are often unable to leave the hospital to get food or may not be able to afford outside snacks for their child in treatment.
During her treatment at Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, Delilah saw the benefits of offering a snack room for patients and their families. Working with a child life specialist at Summerlin Hospital, Delilah developed a similar concept for patients in Las Vegas.
Sept. 22 is a date that holds special significance for Delilah. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma when she was 16 years old, Delilah began treatment at Summerlin Hospital on Sept. 22, 2017 and became part of the TRF family.
Additionally, TRF and Project 150 recently collaborated to provide school supplies and meals to local Las Vegas families in need.
