The SixFinger Foundation today announced a partnership with Sharp Barnhart Cancer Center of Chula Vista, California that will facilitate The SixFinger Foundation’s Palliative Swag Campaign of distributing specially curated items at no cost to alleviate, satisfy and support patients and their loved ones when facing cancer in this unique enviroment focused on healing.
“Sharp Barnhart Cancer Center is grateful for the generous donation of ‘Palliative Swag’ items from The SixFinger Foundation. The coloring books with colored pencils, and book of poems are great comfort and entertainment for our patients and families as they move through their cancer treatment journey” said Cara Fairfax, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Worker and Patient Navigator. “We provide these items to patients individually as the need arises and add them to our ‘art cart’ so that patients and family members can choose to use them when they want to, while waiting for their appointment or a loved one or to help their young children stay entertained while their parents are being treated. We are excited to have a partnership that supports the emotional needs of our patients and families. ”
The SixFinger Foundation made an initial donation to the Sharp Barnhart Cancer Center of 24 sets of Candles of Hope poetry anthologies and Candles of Hope Colouring Books accompanied by Crayola coloring pencils.
“By partnering with new organizations,” says L Free, Executive Director of The SixFinger Foundation, “we are able to distribute gift bags to patients and communities seeking outside resources that would otherwise not have access to our materials. We look forward to cultivating deeper relationships as word of mouth spreads and the impact of these donations develops.”
