Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) were delivered to Rush Copley Cancer Center in Aurora, IL on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 by Nadia Tourjman-AAFH volunteer. Nadia coordinated the assembly of the Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) at an Exelon Volunteer Event held in early November.
Laura Rollins -Oncology Social Worker- at the cancer care center received 50 0f the Alyssa SAKs. The delivery included 5 different types of Alyssa SAKs – Acrylic paints, watercolors, adult coloring books, drawing and journal kits. These art kits will be given to young adults being treated for life threatening diseases at Rush Copley. Laura mentioned that the cancer care center had only two Alyssa SAKs from a previous donation and she was glad to get more.
Laura was excited to be able to give the young patients an Alyssa SAK and is looking forward to them being able to have fun expressing themselves through art.
