Youth Coloring Project Infuses Hope

09/21/2020

Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) is encouraging children of all ages to take part in our new coloring campaign called “Infuse Hope”. Later this fall, chemotherapy will be available for patients at our new Infusion Center, and the coloring campaign is designed to help spread love and hope to local patients undergoing treatment. By simply participating in this campaign, you will be “infusing hope” to local patients who are facing a very difficult journey.

Completed artwork will be shared with patients during each visit. Cheri Everson, BRMH obstetrics director and Infusion Center coordinator, encourages youth to participate. “Patients who are undergoing infusion treatments appreciate having distractions, especially ones that bring a sense of joy,” she said. “Sharing this artwork with those who are going through such a difficult time will be very therapeutic and will help reduce their anxiety.” Additionally, an inspirational video has been produced featuring local children and will be available soon to share with patients.

Coloring pages can be downloaded from www.brmh.net/infusehope or can be picked up at hospital Entrance D. The completed artwork can be dropped off at Entrance D or three other drop-off locations in the community: Hansen’s IGA, Black River Falls Public Library and Black River Child Care Center. Coloring pages also can be scanned and emailed to excellence@brmh.net.
