Nora’s Home is proud to have partnered with Texas Children’s Hospital Transplant Unit. Today, tiles painted by Texas Children’s transplant kiddos were gifted to Texas Children’s and installed on the 12th floor in West Tower.
Painting with these kids was such a blast! It is my hope that these tiles bring as much joy to those on the 12th floor as these children did to me. They are an inspiration to all!
A big thank you to Texas Children’s crew for all of their help in making this possible. I could not have been done without y’all!

In honor of Donate Life month, Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute hosted its first “Celebrating the Gift” event at which transplant patients and their families show their appreciation for donors and their families. Doctors, staff, recipients, and donor family members shared emotional personal stories about illness and organ failure, strength, and gratitude for the gift of life.
Nora’s Home was so proud to be a part of the beautiful event. Organ recipients and family members painted tiles as a testament to their loved ones, their experience and their donors.
