Helping Hands

The Sweet Life Fund helps burn victims survive tough times

Scott Sweet was just a second-grader when he was severely burned by a live wire. He spent countless days in the hospital and still remembers the sadness of missed recesses and feeling isolated from his schoolmates. But the care he received made a lasting impression, inspiring him and his wife Cathy to help other children dealing with similar medical crises.

Scott and Cathy established the Sweet Life Fund at Communities Foundation of Texas, and the first grant they made was to Parkland Foundation. Through this grant, they started the Scott and Cathy Sweet Endowment to benefit Parkland’s Burn Center to support, enhance and improve the recovery of burn patients. And while Scott and Cathy would love to see the rooms on that floor empty, they know their partnership with CFT will continue to provide lasting care for current and future patients.
