A Day At Wonderland

It was a day away from the hospital

AMARILLO - It was a day to get away from the hospital. 

Panhandle Agents, The Outdoor Adventure Foundation, Circle of Friends, and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center partnered together to host over 60 pediatric oncology patients and their families to a picnic lunch and an afternoon of fun at Wonderland Amusement Park. 

Brenda Chandler, TTUHSC Pediatric Hematology Oncology Nurse said, "We like to give back to them and have one day with their families to just have fun and enjoy themselves and be normal." 

The kids and their families enjoyed the rides and the weather while also connecting with their doctors. 
 
 "We like to give back to them and have one day with their families to just have fun and enjoy themselves and be normal," Dr. Samer Kaylani, TTUHSC Pediatric Hematologist Oncologist said. "I think this is a great opportunity to see them outside of the hospital environment. You see them running around, having fun, getting to know each other." 
 
This day at Wonderland has been going on for over 10 years. 
 
Dr. Kaylani went on to say, "The more we can give to these kids, the more smiles we see on their faces, that's the best gratitude we can get."
