Eve of Janus
 

The 2017 Eve of Janus event was held July 22 at The Country Music Hall of Fame.

Event co-chairs are ML Davis and Diana Day-Cartee. The Advisory Board chair is Carroll Kimball.

The Eve of Janus is Children's Hospital's longest-running fundraising event. Over more than 45 years, the Nashville alumnae chapter of Delta Delta Delta has given more than $4 million in support of the Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Clinic and the new Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Research Endowment at Children's Hospital.

Throughout the nation, hospitals for childhood cancer have become the national philanthropy of Delta Delta Delta sorority, primarily because of the outstanding work done in Nashville and in the Southern California area on behalf of children's health.

The Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Clinic at Children's Hospital is a highly specialized medical facility offering comprehensive treatment to children with cancer and blood diseases. The emphasis is on family centered, exceptional patient care and on translational research, where innovative therapies are rapidly brought to the bedside.

Although cure rates are up, the incidence of cancer continues to rise in all age, racial and ethnic subgroups and especially in adolescents. The following facts may surprise you:

  • More than 12,500 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
  • In the past 20 years, the cure rate for childhood cancers has more than doubled, from approximately 30 percent to 80 percent.
  • Despite these advances, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children, after trauma.

The Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Clinic works closely with Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, which is one of a select group of National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers in the southeast and the only one in Tennessee dedicated to providing the most promising therapies and advancing research in all types of cancer in children and adults.

You can support the Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Clinic and our patients by calling the Children’s Hospital Development office at (615) 322-7284. To find more information regarding the Eve of Janus please visit the Nashville Deltas website.
