Four years ago, at the age of 8, Cecilia Treviño (Ceci), was diagnosed with a brain tumor at Texas
Children’s Hospital Main Campus (TCH). During her hospital stay, she was surprised by the love and care
shown by family, friends, and even strangers. The gifts and surprises she received kept her distracted
and helped her to not be afraid or scared of the treatments, and extended hospital stay.
In 2019, Ceci collected over 350 toys for children being treated at TCH during Christmas. Her goal was to
bring a smile to the many children who were being treated at TCH. The following year we doubled in the
toys collected. In 2021, The Ceci Cares Foundation was created and certified as a 501 (C)(3). Since 2019
to 2023 we have donated over 10,000 toys to TCH Main Camps, TCH Woodlands, TCH Katy, Memorial
Herman Pediatrics Hospital, The Sunshine Kids, and this past year we expanded to UTMB John Sealy
Hospital in Galveston, TX. Along with toys, this past year, we were able to purchase $2,000 in parking
validation tickets and gave those to TCH Main Campus and Memorial Herman Pediatrics Hospital.
On June 24, 2023, we will be hosting our 2nd fundraising event, “Noche de Loteria” which will be held at
the Fellowship Hall at St. Theresa Catholic School in Memorial Park. We anticipate approximately 100
people to attend the event.
