Delivered about 20 origami bouquets to one of the oncology coordinators.
Here is the report from her first delivery – I just delivered three of the flowers to the inpatient oncology unit at Littleton. The first lady was so grateful. The second one couldn’t quit smiling. And the third was a very weak, tiny, elderly lady who looked to be of Japanese descent. Her face lit up like sunshine. She had a pillow in her lap so I laid it on the pillow. Later, when I was leaving, I peeked in on her. She was asleep with the flowers in her hand. This morning one of the Radiation Therapists took one to put by the machines so patients could see it when they walked in for treatment. I would say that the first four made the day for a lot of people.
When I asked the ladies who run the oncology infusion centers for ideas for more ways to reach their patients they both shared a wish for some help for critical patients. These patients have been admitted to the hospital and because of compromised immune systems they cannot receive flowers!
My friend Seth is a master origami artist and volunteered to help me make these Bouquets! The butterflies were given to me by another friend Janice.
We hope to bring a little joy!
I wish we could donate these awesome folding boxes Seth make but they take him six hours to create….
Found: one package of premium origami paper.
Use: donated to church.
The church has two uses.
The candle lighting area for concerns or celebrations. The small dish of folded origami crosses, take one after you light your candle as a remembrance.
The monthly card ministry. Each month’s recipients receive an origami surprise.
