Dear Dance Marathon Family,

We first want to say thank you. Thank you for joining our organization, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your life, and thank you for inspiring our movement. You are one of over 1,000 families that continue to touch our lives each and every day.

Our goal for this next year is to ensure that you not only experience financial support, but also the emotional support our organization strives to provide for your family through our programs inside and outside of the hospital. Members of our Family Relations team will volunteer at the Stead Family Children's Hospital and conduct activities for the kids every day of the week. Outside of the hospital, we host eight different Family Events throughout the year, hoping to bring all of our Dance Marathon families together with our organization to spend a fun-filled day. Becoming a part of our Representative Program allows your family to be paired with a Dance Marathon member to keep you informed about these events, while creating a more personal relationship to our organization.

We have dedicated this next year to ensure that your family’s needs, both before, during, and after treatment, will not go unsupported. No matter where you are at along your journey, we will always be right beside you. For any questions regarding Family Relations, please never hesitate to contact me at DM-FamilyLiaison@uiowa.edu.

For The Kids Always,

Monica Myers and Courtney Sadler

Family Liaison Director and Hospital Liaison Director, Dance Marathon 26
