Empowering expression. Enriching lives.

WAVE Award

Kim Thornborrow and the St. Vincent Auxiliary recently received the Partners of Wisconsin Hospital Association Award for Volunteer Excellence (WAVE). They were cited for their work to improve the lives of hospitalized children by giving them the opportunity to express themselves through painting -- while staying in the hospital.

Kim brings the canvas, all art supplies, and if allowed her therapy dog, Cree to the hospital and works with children one-on-one to guide them as they create two one-of-a-kind pieces of art. The child gets to keep one painting as a special gift and memory of their session, and the other remains with HEAL for fundraising purposes to help support the program and continue our mission!



There is never a charge to the family! Our program exists through the help of very special foundations and donors throughout this community!  Without you, our success is only a vision!
