Miss North Texas and Miss DFW Outstanding Teen Visit The T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center

On December 17, Miss North Texas, Madi Franquiz and Miss DFW Outstanding Teen, Lauren Bond visited with hospice patients at the T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center.

“I’m so grateful to Lauren Bond, Miss DFW’s Outstanding Teen and Madi Franquiz, Miss North Texas, for taking the time to visit our patients at the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center,” said John Mezo, Faith Presbyterian Hospice Executive Director. “The love and kindness shown to our patients and families is a testimonial to how these two ladies truly care about people, especially those who are weary and need an encouraging word.”

Miss DFW Outstanding Teen, Lauren Bond is the daughter of Faith’s Medical Director, Dr. Michael Bond.

“Lauren’s visit to the T. Boone Pickens Center was a unique and uncommon visit for this institution,” said Dr. Bond. “The positive energy, inquisitive interaction and genuine empathy of a dynamic 16-year-old is unlike any of the other “celebrity” visits to the center.”

In addition to chatting with several patients and their family members and posing for photos while touring the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center, the duo made one of the visits extra special by singing happy birthday to a patient on her big day!

“Lauren is an introspective young lady who through her own adversity has found joy in helping others.  Her social impact initiative is Different People Make a Difference” advocates to erase the negative perception people have about others’ dissimilarities and encourages embracing the unique differences each of us possess,” said Dr. Bond.

Lauren plans to return to the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center to visit with more patients and families.
