A Day Full of Color & Love for a Terminally-Ill Artist


Vergillia Barnhill used to love to paint. In fact, she has several of her own paintings hanging in her room.

We wanted to give this 88-year-old patient a chance to do what she loves with the people she loves most.

Vergillia, her friends, and her family were gathered together for palette painting.

Vergillian Barnhill Gif of a Day

"This day exuded the Gift of a Day spirit with laughter and smiles from everyone who attended," says Social Worker Taryn Halferty.

 The Gift of a Day program was inspired by Jim Stovall's book, The Ultimate Gift. Every patient is given the opportunity to have a perfect day doing what they love.
