The Healing Messages Booklets are being used!
We have received a wonderful message from a patient at Sibley Memorial Hospital thanking us for our Gift Package and sharing the poem she wrote in our Healing Messages booklet with us.

“Thank you, and your friend, for the beautiful book of poetry (that I have read and re-read) and the journal. Humanity is expressed in small acts of human interaction, compassion, and kindness, not just in outpourings of emotion on occasions of remembrance. It is comforting and inspiring to know that there are people of sensibilities and sensitivity, and compassion.
Alas, they are not in my daily mini-world!
I remain home and sick. Hope to be well enough for an infusion on Thursday (one week later than initially scheduled).
My sincere thanks to you and your friend for your life-affirming kindness and compassion.”
