12-year-old Cecilia “Ceci” Trevino brings comfort to hospital-bound children during the holidays with her Ceci Cares Foundation.

Houston, Texas– The holidays are a special time for 12-year-old Cecilia “Ceci” Trevino.

Not for any gifts she might receive, but for the comfort she can give to other children who are suffering from a serious illness in Houston-area hospitals.

At the age of 8, Ceci was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Emergency surgery saved her life. She would have to walk and talk again.

The doctors, nurses and staff at Texas Children’s Hospital comforted Trevino as she healed.

They would bring toys to Ceci to brighten her spirits.

When Ceci was 9 years old, she wrote a letter to her parents, Jorge and Melissa, expressing her gratitude to everyone who helped her.

She asked her parents if they would ask her school, St. Theresa’s, if she could host a toy ride. A toy collection to collect toys for the other kids in the hospital.

They brought 300 toys to Texas Children’s in the first year and 750 in the second.

Your oncologist Dr. Frank Lin suggested starting a non-profit 501c organization to get organized. The Ceci Cares Foundation delivered 6000 toys last year.

More than $9,000 was raised this year. “Because I’ve been so lucky, I want to help children. I know it’s a tough time for her,” says Ceci. “I want you to know that you are not alone.”

Ceci continues to be examined. She’s not out of the woods yet, but she’s a successful 7th grader.

She plays golf and volleyball and cheers at St. Theresa’s. And thanks to her Ceci Cares Foundation, her holiday wish list continues to grow.
