During their hospital stay with their own young daughter and cancer patient, Gracie, the Kiltz family was well supported, however, they were first-hand observers of the struggles many families faced as they dealt with the care of their critically ill children in addition to the needs of their healthy children and the day to day details of life.

His Grace Foundation

was designed to be “grace in the need of the moment” for the patients and their families on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU) of Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH).

 

Gift Baskets

His Grace Foundation’s initial encounter with the patient and his or her family will be through the delivery of a gift basket made specifically for the child when they enter the BMTU. The basket is filled with toys, games, personal need items and goodies suited for a lengthy hospital stay.

 

Meals
Twice a month HGF will turn the family room into a warm and inviting dining room with flowers, music and gourmet food for patients’ families to enjoy.

Lunch is also delivered to patient rooms for parents and caregivers on Tuesdays twice a month.
