Review for FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART IN HOSPITALS INC, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Art is the language of the unspoken soul. Nature is the language of our existance and capturing both.... is indeed a rare gift. Elaine has the gift to capture both and is willing to share her talents so that others may reap the benefits of experiencing nature and art whenever they find themselves in an indoor environment far removed from what it is that the soul needs to speak.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the depth of knowledge possessed by Elaine n

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgable

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way we practice medicine in a hospital setting

Ways to make it better...

I would have had more wall space

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the world to understand the need for more of this intervention in a healthcare setting

One thing I'd also say is that...

it is now time to send out the message that art design and nature matter ..especially when it comes to health

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I conducted a research study where we used Elaines photographs.

Review for Scientific Arts Foundation, St. Louis, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a researcher and individual who has come to value the work that the Scientific Arts Foundation is accomplishing on a person to person level that I am amazed that cancer is still around. The director, Amy Camie is so dynamic and purpose driven that with such great energy behind the SAF efforts it seems that cancer does not stand a chance.. and when it comes to the dramatic research they are doing it seems that a cancer trouble spot "chemo brain " can be lessened significantly. My hat goes off to the effors of the SAF for their public educational seminars, low cost distribution of research music proven to reduce chemo related stress, personal intervention on a case my case basis and of course the time and talent of the director Amy Camie.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The willingness to communicate, share and dream without regard to time ...it's only the person who matters most

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a huge impact in the war not only with cancer but other comorbidites such as diabetes, obesity, ADHD, and autism

Ways to make it better...

there were enough funds to carry out the SAF already approved IRB hospital based study.... if only a small grant of $60 - 70K could be realized then folks could start winning in the battle with cancer

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money alone

One thing I'd also say is that...

if wishes, good deeds, tremendous effort, unfailing determination and humble heart felt prayers could generate dollars than the SAF would be a household word and forever identified as an organization who played a huge role in enabeling mankind to thrive

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
