LAS VEGAS – Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is debuting its newest themed patient exam room, which offers childhood patients a colorful and inspiring atmosphere for their frequent medical appointments.
Thanks to a generous donation from Farhan and Ellie Naqvi, on behalf of Naqvi Injury Law, the patient exam room combines elements of high fashion, elegance, and mid-century modern inspirations. The room was designed by Elizabeth Coleman, an attorney with Naqvi Injury Law.
“We have quickly come to learn just how important and how special our themed exam rooms are to our patients—which is wonderful!” said Annette Logan-Parker, CEO, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Many patients will often request a specific themed room for their next appointment. It gives patients something to look forward to despite the ongoing nature of their particular medical journey,” said Logan-Parker.
Illustrations, artwork, and furniture in the Naqvi Injury Law room are incorporated around the room’s existing medical equipment. The paint used on the walls is courtesy of the Sherwin-Williams Company, which provides a special microbial-resistant glossy paint at no cost to the clinic. The specialized paint allows the room to be cleaned and sterilized without damaging or dulling the design. All fixtures and furniture brought into the room also meet health standards and do not harbor bacteria which could be dangerous to immune-compromised patients.
“Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is near and dear to me,” said Farhan Naqvi. “Family is so important to us personally and professionally. I am fortunate to have healthy children, but cancer can happen to anyone. On behalf of myself and Ellie, our family, and our whole firm, we couldn’t be more thankful for this incredible honor,” he said.
The Naqvi Injury Law patient exam room joins a star-studded selection of exam rooms at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. Debuting in March of 2019, the Gwen Stefani-inspired room reflects many favorites of the GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist, including images of sunflowers, bananas, a reference to her hit single ‘Hollaback Girl;’ and oranges, an homage to her hometown of Anaheim, in Orange County, Calif. The illustrations were designed and completed by Las Vegas artist Juan Muniz.
Muniz was also responsible for the kid-friendly themes and colorful artwork that adorn the walls of the Criss Angel patient exam room. Based on elements incorporated into Criss Angel MINDFREAK at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Juan Muniz’ illustrations include a caricature of Criss Angel, and a tree and handprints which represent the children being treated at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. Angel’s son, Johnny Crisstopher, who received treatment at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, joined his father for the room’s debut in May of 2019.
Since 2007, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation has treated more than 50,000 individual patients who were affected by childhood cancer or other life-threatening conditions. All donations to Cure 4 The Kids Foundation stay in Nevada to help patients in our state and those from surrounding states.
