Green Valley and Sahuarita Members & Guests
MEDICAL DOLL PROJECT
The ladies of Green Valley have again undertaken their Medical Doll Project. In addition to the dolls this year, they will be making surgical hats for the children. The dolls will be distributed to the Diamond Children’s Center in Tucson and an equal number will be delivered to HMO. The dolls are hand delivered with whoever is traveling to Jerusalem near the completion time.
The Therapeutic Dolls are vital tools used to help alleviate anxiety in young patients and help them better understand their treatments. By using the dolls the doctors and nurses explain treatments to the children and allow the children to discuss their feelings during the treatment process. Each patient receives their own doll so many are needed.
Please join us for this special outreach program.. Everyone is welcome! The women get together monthly to work on this project.
