Patients and providers at the Texas Children’s Hospital marched in a very special parade to honor kids and families impacted by pediatric cancer, complete with a four-legged grand marshal and the hospital’s music therapists leading the way.

The parade was a wonderful way for the patients and families to get out of their hospital rooms and have fun.

Patients of all ages enjoyed a party with face-painting and dancing at the culmination of the parade.
