Through comprehensive fund raising efforts and prudent management of donor funds, the Nashville Alumnae Chapter has supported the Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Program at Vanderbilt's Children's Hospital since 1970. Throughout the nation, hospitals for childhood cancer have become the national philanthropy of Delta Delta Delta sorority, primarily because of the outstanding work done in Nashville and Southern California areas on behalf of children's hospitals. The Tri Delta Pediatric Hematology Oncology Program of Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital is a highly specialized medical facility offering comprehensive treatment to children with cancer and blood diseases. The emphasis is on family-centered, exceptional patient care and on “translational research,” where innovative therapies are rapidly brought to the bedside. The Director of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology that we support and work closely with is Dr. Debra L. Friedman.
