Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patient Natalie, age 17 of Coppell, has been a patient at TSRHC since she was 3 weeks old. Born missing her left hand, Natalie has proven that anything is possible with the right attitude and help from the physicians in the hospital's Charles E. Seay, Jr. Hand Center. A junior at New Tech High at Coppell and Head Captain for the colorguard, Natalie uses a fingerless glove—fabricated in the hospital's prosthetics department—that she wears over her left arm to grip the flag during a performance. This year, she shared her talents with fellow hand patients at TSRHC where she performed a duet with a close friend and fellow colorguard member. For Natalie, who recalls learning to tie her shoes at TSRHC, the hospital has been a place for her to flourish as she grew from a child into a young adult. For the past four years, Natalie has been a regular at a camp offered to TSRHC patients with hand differences. Natalie is a wonderful example to her peers and fellow patients alike.

Since 1997, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has been the primary beneficiary of the MetroPCS Dallas White Rock Marathon and has received more than $2.8 million in donations from the marathon. In March of 2012, the Dallas White Rock Marathon made a $1 million donation to the hospital from proceeds of the 2011 race!
