Dec My Room

Creating Healing Places in the Bay Area

Dear friends of Dec My Room,

We've made great progress with Dec My Room since we launched at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital last fall. And, we're excited to announce that we just decorated our first patient rooms at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. I'm deeply grateful for your support of Dec My Room and I'm excited to share some of our 2016 milestones with you!

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital News

Thanks to your generosity, we have transformed the rooms of 30 children at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital so far this year. This is our little buddy, JJ, who received a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle extravaganza! JJ's dad said, "I'd like to thank the visitors from Dec My Room for their generous gifts. JJ really enjoyed the whole experience and you all made us feel so special. Go Turtle power!!"


Here's what a child life specialist at UCSF Benioff says about Dec My Room, "The joy you bring these patients and families is truly something so beautiful. We can't thank you enough! You help them smile through some of the hardest times."

Fundraising News

Huge thanks to Scott Woods of Pacific Union Realty in Tiburon and his wife Annie. Their generous donation will provide four patients with cheery decorated rooms at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. We are thrilled to have Scott and Annie join the Dec My Room family.

This may look like a Niners game, but it's actually the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Prom. Dec My Room volunteers Heather Birks and Julia Knight (pictured), Allison Bainbridge and Tate Holt joined me at this amazing event. Big shout out to San Francisco 49ers players Eric Reid, Vance McDonald, Brandon Thomas, Garrison Smith and D'Andre Campbell who made the event so special for over 225 current and former pediatric patients and their friends.

Polka Dot Powerhouse Networking Event

In preparation for our launch at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, Dec My Room volunteers and San Francisco Auxiliary members Bettina Mullen and Lisa Cole attended a women's networking event sponsored by Polka Dot Powerhouse at Devil's Canyon Brewing Company in San Carlos. These ladies did a fabulous job spreading the word about DMR!

Volunteers Bettina Mullen and Anna Henderson joined me in decorating our very first patient room at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. The patient was feeling a bit too shy for a photo, but he loved his Star Wars themed room.

This little princess loved her butterfy and castle themed room at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. We know she's entertaining everyone there with her brand new karaoke machine, too!
