OK Kids Korral: Plans Approved & Ready for Construction

13 Dec

When children are diagnosed with cancer, they often undergo extensive treatments, which require a lot of rest afterward in order for them to recover.  That is why the Toby Keith Foundation is planning to build a comfortable place for these children and their families to stay while they go through the treatment process.

According to Juliet Nees-Bright, Director of the Toby Keith Foundation, the OK Kids Korral, located at NE 8 and Laird, will serve as a home away from home for children with cancer, and their families, who are undergoing treatment at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center, the Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center, or other cancer treatment facilities in the area.

The OK Kids Korral will include twelve overnight suites that can host up to five people each. There will also be four other family rooms ideal for day stays and a library and play area to provide entertainment.  Families can come in the morning and stay in their rooms or enjoy the facilities while they wait for their afternoon treatment. Not only can they relax inside, but the OK Kids Korral is strategically located within the downtown area for convenience.

The OK Kids Korral will begin construction in the sprint, and it is estimated to be completed by late 2013. Plans for construction are already approved by the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority.
