Healing Notes Outreach Program Update

Several years ago I laid in a hospital bed knowing that patients needed more inspiration and connection with others that had experienced similar struggles than they needed flowers or other gifts. Today my dream of having a way to say something meaningful during difficult times came to fruition. Bridges to Patient Empowerment started the Healing Notes Outreach program at Presbyterian St. Luke’s hospital. It was a great beginning and I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this program in regards to time, money, or vision. I would like to make a special shout out to the program’s biggest supporters who have been essential to making this this program a reality.


First and foremost on my list is Suzanne Bates who has a special place in this program for all time.

Presbyterian St. Luke’s–a hospital that has been a leader in art therapy for patients and I could not have dreamed of a better place to start.

Dr. Raymond Garrett-who has supported my mission from day one

Don Buteyn- Your memory and support will stay with us

Johanna Creighton- without your support, this would not have been possible.

Dustin and Serena Winn- your contribution was the first that allowed this program begin to formulate.

Trent and Nicole Babish – your donation and support helped us take every step to get here.

Suzanne Rich- Your donations have sustained this effort.

Maureen Mulder , Will Sarni, Dianne Maroney and Ike Silberman -thank you for your support!

To keep this program going we will need more support. Please consider contributing whatever you can in time or money. Donate here 

Thank you

Lynsie Buteyn
