Providing warmth, love, and compassion to children in our community who we would not normally help in our clinics was an amazing experience.
Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
BreakThrough Physical Therapy, a private physical therapy practice in North Carolina, is proud to announce its recent partnership with the global non-profit organization, Soaringwords. Soaringwords’ mission is to lessen the impact of serious illness by connecting ill children and their families to a community of compassionate and caring volunteers. BreakThrough joined forces with the non-profit organization to help inspire local children and their families to heal and “Never give up!”
The inspiration for the children and their families was delivered in the form of quilts and pillows; decorated with messages of motivation, love, and encouragement. BreakThrough staff members and patients decorated more than 35 red and white patchwork quilts and pillows and then delivered them to young patients at Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston Salem, NC.
“BreakThrough Physical Therapy enjoyed getting creative with our patients to decorate these inspirational quilts and pillows,” says Jeff Hathaway, PT, DPT, BreakThrough therapist and owner. “Providing warmth, love, and compassion to children in our community who we would not normally help in our clinics was an amazing experience.”
Through both hospital and educational outreach programs, Soaringwords has reached more than 250,000 children and adults, schools in 30 states, and more than 100 hospitals. To learn more about the organization please visit SoaringWords.org.
