OH, WHAT A NIGHT! On Wed. Sept. 2nd the Cleveland Stroke Club (CSC) met at Kindred Hospital and had THREE breakout sessions after dinner: caregiver meeting, survivor meeting, and art studio! The American Heart Association, Cleveland (AHA) invited us to paint canvases for the 2015 AHA Cleveland Heart Walk and generously provided some supplies. Sherwin Williams donated the paint. Kindred Hospital allowed us to turn their cafeteria into a buzzing art center for the evening. We put finishing touches on our canvases two weeks later at our meeting at Disciples Christian Church. See our pictures below. Special Thanks goes to our hosts and helpers: Mark Twilla, CEO of Kindred Hospital; Disciples Christian Church, Michael Long from the American Heart Association, Cleveland; Sherwin Williams for donating the paint and hanging our art in the Sherwin Williams tent; Geri Pitts, Executive Director of the Cleveland Stroke Club; Katie Kern-Pilch, our beloved Art Therapist and Caregiver; Barbara Schecter, Art Assistant and Caregiver; and Kay Exl, Art Assistant and Volunteer. THANK YOU for making this night possible.
ARTISTS: thank you for your stories of recovery: journeys of the heart, faith, and hope!
