“I discovered Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals simply in Google search when I was looking for healing art in healthcare industry. I’m a photographer and do a lot of nature photos which I consider as healing art which can help for the ill people to relieve with the pain and negative thoughts.
When I found Photo Art in Hospitals site I decided that my art definitely could be a part of this missionary program and applied for participation. 
Elaine, the president of the foundation was quick with her answer and review on my application and made the process go fast and smooth. 
I’m proud to be the part of such program and grateful for Elaine who accepted my request to join this great team!
May it be more people in the world as Elaine and the life will be much brighter and lighter. 
Blessings!”
