Henry’s Art Drive for Tracy’s Kids Art Therapy Program

In September 2017,  Glebe 2nd grader Henry was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. Over the last eighteen months, he has been receiving treatment at Children’s National Hospital. The Tracy’s Kids Art Therapy Program has been an integral part of Henry’s healing. This art drive is Henry’s way to give back to Tracy’s Kids and support other kids with cancer and their families.
Thank you for your generosity, the Glassman Family
