This is my 10th year as a volunteer for the Art4Healing program at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Through this program, it has been a blessing to me to work with kids from ages 4-25 who have cancer. I meet with them one-on-one in their hospital rooms and provide the tools, encouragement, and interaction to help them express themselves through art. Even their family members often join in to create an art project that helps them find some release for stress or discouragement.
Art 4 Healing is an important organization that facilitates many different kinds of healing through art and creativity. Laurie is a very special person who, through her vision, has developed programs for people suffering from several different kinds of pain. What a privilege it is to be part of this non-profit!
