Bringing Hope to Others

The Light of Healing Hope Foundation (LHHF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization working to build a program of hope and healing through poetry and beautiful images wherever there is suffering. LHHF is also providing Healing Messages booklets for patients to write or draw their own thoughts to nurture the spiritual healing from within that is such a vital part of physical healing. Today, institutions such as Johns Hopkins, NIH, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and VITAS Hospice Innovative Care are distributing LHHF’s words of love, hope, and courage to patients and caregivers.

“I was truly moved by the beautiful book of poems, Healing Light… I have given some thought about how to deal with disappointment and sorrow, and I found the prayers/poems so healing.”~Amy Vance
NIH patient, New York City


…marvelously soothing to my heart…the poetry comforts me… I can’t have flowers because I am neutropenic due to my chemotherapy so this is the best gift for me.

Healing Through Writing

Decades of research prove the important connection between writing and healing. Studies by researchers such as James W. Pennebaker have shown that writing about difficult times not only improves mental health and facilitates emotional healing, but has tangible effects on physical health as well.

“For so many desperately ill patients, Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave’s poems have provided comfort and a sense of hope more precious than any drug. The Light of Healing Hope Foundation never forgets that solace is a blessed remedy.”~Milton Corn, MD, Dean Emeritus, Georgetown University School of Medicine

Healing Through Art

Recent experiences in hospitals have shown that looking at beautiful works of art or participating in art classes may also help bring comfort and calm to those who are suffering. The Light of Healing Hope Foundation’s books of hope are a combination of kind words and beautiful images that we find to have a beneficial effect on those in need of comfort.
