A delivery of Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) was made to Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago, Illinois on Monday, May 13, 2019.

Yoli – AAFH President met the Art Therapist- Lynne Linkowski who is part of the Therapeutic Recreation Department (TRD).  AbilityLab has a floor dedicated to Oncology patients and Lynne will make sure they promote our Gift Recipient Program to those young adult patients.  Each day TRD works with young patients who are interested in expressing themselves through music and art. 

We delivered a variety of Alyssa SAKs which included 5 different types of kits: acrylic, watercolor, drawing, journals, and adult coloring books.

The Alyssa SAKs will be available for teens and young adults between the ages of 10 and 21 staying at the AbilityLab.   

We continue to share Alyssa’s love of art and promote the programs offered by Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope!
