Children's Quilts for Sanford's Ava's House

 Parishioner Mary Etheridge sits with the completed quilts that will go to Sanford's Ava House to be given to children in hospice. Many thanks to Mary for purchasing the quilt tops and for Billie Taylor from Calvary Cathedral for sewing them. What a wonderful ministry this is.  Ava’s House by Sanford,  provides 24-hour nursing care to patients of all ages in a home-like environment. It will ensure that patients have a comforting place to turn when symptoms and pain are beyond the scope of care currently provided at the Sanford Hospice Cottages or delivered in the hospital, long-term care facilities or in-home settings. Ava's House will feature 16 adult patient rooms and 4 pediatric patient rooms.  Honoring its namesake, Ava Holder, who passed away at 4 years old after a courageous battle against cancer, Ava’s House offers one of only four in-patient pediatric hospice programs in the country.
