An initial delivery of 15 Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAK) to the RMH Family Room in Edward Hospital was done on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 by Yoli Alvin-AAFH President.

We met with Brittany, RHM Manager, and two other Child Life Specialists (Melissa and Kristen) who work with the inpatients at Edward Hospital.  They mentioned the lack materials for the teens staying at the RMH Family Room and that the Alyssa Starter Art Kits would serve to fill this void.  We delivered a variety of Alyssa SAKs included writing journals, adult coloring books and drawing kits.  AAFH provides Alyssa SAKs to medical institutions and RMHs to give teens and young adults between the ages of 10 and 21 an opportunity to create their own work of art, write their thoughts in their journal, relax and have fun coloring.   

We thank the Child Life Staff of RMH Family Room at Edward Hospital for giving us the opportunity to share Alyssa’s love of art and music, and promoting the programs offered by Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope!
