"Supporting children's health initiatives is a longstanding community priority for us," said Sam Henry, president and CEO of GDF SUEZ Energy Resources.  "We're proud to help raise awareness of pediatric cancer issues and help fund important treatment and education programs for these young cancer patients and their families."
