Georgetown Jingle 2009 | Four Seasons Hotel DC

Georgetown Jingle 2009 Four Seasons Hotel DC 12.14.2008

In 2006, the Georgetown Jingle was created by the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, JDS Designs, Inc., The Washington Design Center, and the Georgetown BID to raise money for pediatric oncology programs in the Washington DC Metro area. Thanks to the generosity of area businesses, restaurants, and design professionals, the Georgetown Jingle has raised $645,000 for the Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, Blood & Marrow Transplantation Program at Georgetown University Hospital.

The purpose of this family-friendly event is to celebrate the fashions of the holiday season and to support families battling cancer. In 2008, the committee is delighted to extend our support to two programs at Georgetown University Hospital. We will again support the hospital's pediatric bone marrow transplantation program. And this year, in addition to offering hope to young cancer patients who require life-saving transplantation, donations to the Jingle will be extending care to pediatric cancer survivors through the Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program. It is our continued goal to help them establish a comprehensive pediatric clinic and research center benefiting hundreds of children in our area.

Georgetown Jingle 2008 raises funds for two programs at Georgetown University Hospital: the Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program and the Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program. The programs' internationally recognized specialists are on the cutting edge of cancer research and treatment, and each staff member is dedicated to providing compassionate care in a setting that encourages young patients to act like kids-even while they're battling cancer.

As the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Washington, DC area, Georgetown Pediatrics can provide pediatric patients and their families with the most advanced therapies available, as well as a wide range of resources-including social services, art therapy, dietetic counseling, and emotional or spiritual support.
