About The Children's Grand Adventure

The Children’s Grand Adventure was founded in 2008 by native Houstonian Stacey Kayem, whose family, friends and loved ones are source of enduring support. The program benefits from a coordinated effort with the Medical Directors and staff of Texas Children’s Cancer Center, including Dr. ZoAnn Dreyer, Medical Director, Long Term Survivor Program; and Lisa McCoy, Assistant Director of Donor Relations. The Children’s Grand Adventure continues to grow thanks to the numerous gracious donors and benefactors who share in the vision of longer, better, more vibrant lives for young survivors of cancer.
