Our first ever delivery of Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) to the Rush Copley Cancer Center in Aurora, IL was made on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 by Rita Alviar- AAFH Volunteer and Yoli -President of Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope. Laura Rollins the Oncology Social Worker at this cancer center received the Alyssa SAKs. These art kits will be given to young adults being treated for cancer there.
The delivery included 5 different types of Alyssa SAKs – acrylic paint, watercolor, adult coloring book, drawing and journal kits. Laura informed us that there are about 35 young adult cancer patients and an 18-year old patient was going to be receiving treatment there in the coming week. Laura was excited to be able to give the young patient an Alyssa SAK and looks forward to the joy our art program will bring to the young patients at Rush Copley.
