NEWTON, Mass. - Dec. 6, 2016 - PRLog -- When your child is sick, it's hard to keep up a normal daily routine, and even harder doing so during the holiday season. This is something that Paul Turano, executive chef/owner of Cook in Newton, MA, knows all too well, having spent time with his son at Boston Children's Hospital's Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplant Units during past holidays. Both Turano's children have Severe Combined Immune Deficiency Syndrome (SCIDS), and when his son was just two months old he had a bone marrow transplant at Boston Children's Hospital that saved his life.

This holiday season, Turano is once again giving back to the hospital that was there for his family by holding a holiday fundraiser for the Patient and Family Resource Room, a program that helps provide services to families whose children are being treated at Boston Children's Hospital Oncology and Hematology Center.

In cooperation with Boston Children's Hospital, Turano has set up a branded donation page online and will be encouraging holiday donations for the family resource program from December 1st, 2016 through December 31st, 2016. To donate, guests can visit the donation page online on Cook's webpage. In exchange for donating, Turano will give donors a gift certificate to Cook (for up to $20) with proof of donation.

"I can't emphasize how much The One Mission Resource Room helped my family and I when we were going through this difficult time. It's because of their team and services that we were able to maintain a sense of normalcy and routine, and I want to be able to give that back to other families that are going through it," said Chef Turano, Executive Chef/Owner of Cook.

Funded through donations from area businesses and families, The One Mission Resource Room is staffed by a patient and family educator who can help patients and families learn about their medical treatment. Receiving treatment for cancer and other serious disorders can keep families in the hospital for weeks and months on end, a process that takes a toll on their emotions. The One Mission Resource Room  ensures that families who pass through the Hematology, Oncology, Bone Marrow Transplant, Neuro-oncology and Intensive Care units have the help they need at what is probably the most difficult time in their lives. It also offers a space for patients and families to relax and connect with others going through a similar experience. Whether the donated money be used for a morning coffee at the local Dunkin Donuts, or towards purchasing a generic American Express donation that can be used towards gas, or parking (daily routines that are often overlooked), each donation will help parents regain a sense of normalcy in their lives. With the extra help of these funds, Chef Turano will be putting the holidays back in the hands of these families.
