Please Vote

The Cancer Institute at the hospital where I work is seeking a $5000 grant from the foundation started by Lance Armstrong. In order to receive the grant, we need votes--lots of votes--and each person can vote once each day between now and 7 p.m. CST October 29, 2010.

Please go to this site and vote for Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center under the first column, Creative Center: Arts in Healthcare.

Here's a little more about the reason we're requesting the grant funding:

Creative Center: Arts in Healthcare

Arrange for a trained artist to help our cancer patients (inpatients and outpatients) and survivors with art therapy projects.

Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center
Lincoln, NE

Saint Elizabeth has a very active Cancer Outreach Program that includes a support program for cancer survivors called A Time to Heal. It would be wonderful to expand this program to include the Artist in Residence activities. Patients and survivors would benefit greatly from the arts experience as part of our healing environment. Our cancer outreach program has a significant presence in the minority community in our area. We would be able to effectively market the Artist program through our existing community relationships. Kristi Perrotto, MSW, is the cancer outreach program coordinator and would facilitate the Artist in Residence program.

Thank you!!!
