Project HOPE staff members, Lily Hsu, Lisa Zhou and their family members and Leah Bardfield, Pfizer Global Health Fellow, Project HOPE Shanghai, participated in the Disney VoluntEARs program to create artwork for the new oncology wing at the Shanghai Children’s Medical Center.Disney Shanghai sponsored several weekend workshops for volunteers to paint canvas pictures with the dolls from “It’s a Small World.” The paintings depict 30 different Small World dolls, each representing one of the 30 magical years of the Disney VoluntEARS program.
These paintings will brighten up the hospital hallways and reception area where pediatric oncology patients will be receiving their treatments.The new seven floor Shanghai Children’s Hematology and Oncology Tower opens as the largest pediatric cancer center in China with 142 patient beds.
Every year, SCMC hematology and oncology department receives 2700 patient visits and diagnoses 450 new pediatric oncology cases. SCMC is a major referral center for children with advanced cancer coming from all over China to receive their cancer treatments. The Shanghai Children’s Hematology and Oncology Center provides hope for Chinese children with cancer.
