I could not write this if I had not personely seen the effect the photos have on paitients, but they have great effects on them and yes I think this foundation should be rated 5 star, 10 if it were availbe. My grandmother loved viewing the photos and it brought great joy to her imaging she were there in the photos.

My father wanted to express appreciation to the hospital and its staff that cared for him so well. Elaine took the extra time and effort to work with the staff of the area that was to receive the donated photos. She created a beautiful memorial to my father that was mounted appropriately and matched my father's life so well. Thank you, Elaine.

Elaine's mother, Leona, was one of my favorite people. She always encouraged and supported me, especially my musical endeavors. When she became ill, Elaine was her main support, present with her mother at every moment even though it meant leaving her home in Italy for months at a time. From this painful experience came this wonderful foundation, whose art provides encouragement and support for what can be the hardest time in people's lives. I'm grateful for Elaine's work and efforts, and I feel that she is keeping the spirit of her mother alive through this.

With Elaine's positive and creative energy, the possibilities are endless. I know she would be able to imagine even more ways to bring solace and beauty to patients.

Few foundations maintain the highest levels of quality on all fronts--especially as they become more established. This Foundation is one of them. It has been successful in consistently achieving its goals of providing peace to people who are suffering at the end of their life. Their high quality photos have reached hospitals in the most remote corners of the world and continue to expand to others. The founder's efficient organizational and resourceful skills continue to be a pillar of the organization. May all hospitals and patients benefit from this organization.

I have known Elaine Poggi for 40 years and can attest to her absolute conviction, undying empathy and enthusiastic determination to bring light and comfort to others who are in need. She has found a wonderful way to put together her talent and her dedication by contributing her photographic art work to hospital settings around the world. I am a fellow photographer and appreciate her use of the camera to make pleasing scenes for those patients confined to hospital spaces, medical staffs and visitors to enjoy.

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Elaine Poggi and learn of the wonderful work the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals in 2004. Our Auxiliary was looking for something to brighten our patient rooms. Once we spoke with Elaine and saw first had some of her photo art, we knew we had found what we were looking for. Her photo art was filled with her passion for photography and was sure to brighten and lift the spirits of our patients, families, visitors and the staff. We felt fortunate to be able to purchase such high quality art on a relatively low budget. As we expected (and hoped), the photo art was very well received by our patients, etc. Many asked questions about the photographer and where were some of the pictures taken, etc. This photo art is truly "healing art".

How can I not rave about the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals? Their mission is a noble one: to place nature art in hospitals to give comfort and hope to patients. Their leadership is passionate and professional. I have met with their president (Elaine Poggi) several times and am impressed by her ambition and determination. Their reach is global and they make their services available and affordable to all.

I have told many people about this organization, especially photo artists who would cherish knowing about this opportunity to make a difference to so many simply by sharing their gifts as photographers. I have worked with the Executive Director, Elaine Poggi, and am sincerely impressed by her passion for helping advance healing through photo arts in medical settings and her generosity as staff. Anyone associated with this endeavor will experience a great sense of achievement and goodwill to others. It is a program worth supporting in whatever means possible.

I saw the birth of the Foundation and from the beginning I was moved by the depth of the feelings that inspired it. I have always been in admiration of Elaine's ideals, passion and committment. She is doing a great job, I heve seen her work in hospitals here in Florence and felt very proud to know Elaine and be her friend.

My husband and I have seen Elaine's photos and know that her work is exceptional. Elaine has a passion for bringing art, and thereby bringing stimulation and comfort to those in hospitals. We remember seeing the cold, dreary hospital room that Elaine's mother occupied during her lengthy illness. Elaine hung her own photos to bring her cheer. We know that her photos are in many parts of the world and commend her efforts. We hope she continues her great work.

My local hospital in Urbana, Illinois has started to use more art work in patient rooms. I think Elaine Poggi and her foundation have influenced designers of hospitals.

I've seen photos for the first time on the wall of an Hospital in Florence and it gave me a good feeling about all those beautifull pictures in such a sad environment. Later I made a donation to the foundation and helped placing photos in a Rome Hospital. I think that this foundation has a strong power giving happiness and hope to get out of the Hospital to all recovered people. Keep doing that Elaine is such a beautiful thing!!!
