We can help Healwell change the experience of serious illness.

Join me and help make a difference by contributing to Healwell today.

$100 towards $3,000

Help us profoundly change and improve quality of life for hundreds of people affected by acute, chronic, and serious illness. Your donations help provide massage to sick children and their caretakers at Children's Hospital, palliative care patients at Washington Hospital Center, as well as patients in Virginia Hospital Center and several small nursing homes.

Positive touch and massage can be comforting to hospitalized patients and can make significant contributions to patients' healing. As a massage therapist it is beyond gratifying to see a child become calmer and their heart rate decrease after a few minutes of gentle massage. Most recently, I gave a massage to a patient with congestive heart failure. Shortly after the 20 minute massage, this person had their blood pressure taken by the occupational therapist. Both therapist and patient were amazed and thrilled that the blood pressure was at a normal level for the first time during the patient's hospital stay.

Massage works!

Join me in supporting real change. It's easy to make a difference, please make a donation so Healwell can continue its life changing work.

Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for Healwell
