Light of Healing Hope Foundation Donates Packages to Patients

The Light of Healing Hope Foundation recently donated more than 600 gift packages for patients and families staying at the Hackerman-Patz Patient and Family Pavilion.

The gift packages include an illustrated poetry book, journal and pencil, all neatly wrapped in an ornate organza bag.

Sarah Hoehlein, Director of Residential Living at the Hackerman-Patz Pavilion, noticed the impact of the donation: “The Healing Light poetry book shares inspirational words and beautiful illustrations, allowing a moment of respite and reflection in what can otherwise be a very busy day for patients and their caregivers. The journal is a helpful way for patients to capture the experiences and feelings of the day or even write a note to a family member or friend back home.”

In addition to residents at the Pavilion, the gift packages have been included in “appreciation packages” for individuals who are bone marrow donors.

The Light of Healing Hope Foundation, founded by Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave, 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.”  In addition to creating inspiring journal books, the foundation also has developed a series of videos for relaxation and stress relief for patients and their families.
