Tallahassee Memorial Hospital was awarded $100,000 Tuesday to benefit children in their pediatric unit.

The donation was provided by the Children's Cancer Cooperative. Tallahassee Memorial will use the funds to expand and renovate the present pediatric treatment room, which will benefit patients, their families, and those who deliver treatment and clinical care.

President of the Children's Cancer Cooperative Harold Dukes says, "I think it's important that we take care of the children. They're the backbone of this country, so if we don't get them healthy and bring them up right as a child , we're not going to have anybody to follow behind us."

Some of the funds will be used to provide new toys for children, art supplies, cribs for newborns, and treatment material for children in the pediatric unit.
