Mission

The Light of Healing Hope Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated
to providing books of hope as gifts to hospitals to comfort patients and their families at a time of adversity.

  • We provide a book of hope that includes a Healing Notes booklet in which patients may write messages to encourage the healing process, and a music video DVD. 
  • We are committed to bringing comfort to all those who are suffering by offering pathways to spiritual hope, peace, and healing.


“The poetry brings sunshine
to my day, fills my heart with warmth.
I started my day with sadness
dealing with my illness but now
I feel so much better.
The book is the best medicine!
“

“Thank you for helping to Heal our patients with your gifts —
the books of hope send therapeutic messages to our patients!”

Inspiration

On the night of September 11, 2001, Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave prayed for a way to bring comfort to those who had suffered the worst loss imaginable. That prayer led her to write three books of poetry, Healing Light, Heavenly Order, and Beloved Spirit. Thousands of books have been given as gifts to the 9/11 Survivors’ Families, military families, and people experiencing great personal tragedy.

That same prayer has also led to the founding of the Light of Healing Hope Foundation and to finding a fresh way through kind words and beautiful images to bring comfort to those who are suffering.

“I thought Alexandra’s beautiful little book with its inspiring words and lovely images might bring comfort and healing to the grieving families of the September 11 victims.”
~The Honorable John C. Whitehead
Former Chairman, Lower Manhattan Development Corporation

  • Encouragement



    Our Light of Healing Hope gift packages containing the book Healing Light and our Healing Messages journal are being used as tools of comfort and hope in a new research study. The Hickman Cancer Center at the Flower Hospital in Ohio is studying the effects of journal writing on women healing from breast cancer. Participants are provided with our gifts by Nursing Assistant Katie Tipton, pictured with breast cancer patient, Elizabeth.
