About 150 children participated in the “Arts in Medicine” project made possible by a grant from the Miami-Dade Cultural Affairs Council. The children are being treated for cancer, sickle cell anemia and hemophilia. A mural of their artwork will be displayed at the clinic for other children to enjoy.
