Kathryne and Gene Bishop commit more than $6 million for CRI

Former board member of Children’s Health, Gene Bishop, and his wife, Kathy, have made a commitment of approximately $6 million to support the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI).

A previous gift from the couple to support the CRI endowed the Kathryne and Gene Bishop Distinguished Chair in Pediatric Research at Children’s Research Institute at UT Southwestern. Dr. Sean Morrison, director of the CRI, holds that chair.

CRI is home to an interdisciplinary group of over 85 scientists and physicians in seven laboratories who work at the interface of stem cell biology, cancer and metabolism. When completely funded with a $200 million endowment, 15 research laboratories and some 150 scientists will be searching for new treatments for devastating childhood diseases.

Mr. and Mrs. Bishop have actively supported Children’s Health for more than 40 years.

Kidd’s Kids and Music Meets Medicine Therapeutic Arts Room opens

Kidd’s Kids CEO and Chief Happiness Officer Caroline Kraddick, along with Music Meets Medicine Founder Dr. J Mack Slaughter, officially opened the doors of the Kidd’s Kids and Music Meets Medicine Therapeutic Arts Room in memory of Kidd Kraddick at Children’s Medical Center Dallas.

In 2013, Dr. Slaughter and Caroline Kraddick, with support from the nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick Morning Show cast and their loyal listeners, launched a campaign to raise $150,000 to help underwrite the room. The room is dedicated in memory of Caroline’s late father, Kidd Kraddick, who also mentored J Mack Slaughter in his “previous life” as a member of Kidd’s boy band “Sons of Harmony.” The nationally syndicated Kidd Kraddick Morning Show airs locally on KHKS 106.1 KISS-FM.

Books, children and philanthropy: How a local business gives back

A very special gathering took place in the Krissi Holman Family Resource Library at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Staff members came together to thank a local business that donated more than $70,000 to the library, specially made for pediatric patients.

The donation came from El Rio Grande Latin Market, a North Texas grocery chain that has donated more than $200,000 to Children’s Health since 2013. Funds from the donation were raised by customers purchasing Children’s Miracle Network rubber wrist bands stamped in Spanish with the words “Put your money where the miracles are.”
