Arkansas Gives: Alesa Garner’s Story

Alesa Garner colorToday’s the day!!!!!

CHI St. Vincent is celebrating 20 years of New Outlook Cancer Recovery Program. And you can give more to New Outlook when you give today (Thursday, April 7), as CHI St. Vincent participates in Arkansas Gives.

In recognition of our milestone, we are participating in Arkansas Gives – a one-day online giving event supporting favorite charities in Arkansas. You can show your appreciation for New Outlook by logging on to between 8 am and 8 pm, and selecting CHI St. Vincent as the recipient of your gift.

Alesa Garner, BSMT ASCP CN-BC, is the coordinator of New Outlook.

“How do you put into words the impact that New Outlook has had in every county of our state for 20 years?  I have the honor and privilege of seeing the smiles and the tears of survivors and their caregivers when New Outlook provides a small glimmer of hope in the midst of a traumatic cancer diagnosis,” Garner said. “New Outlook truly embodies the ministry and mission of our organization in addressing the needs of body, mind, and spirit.”

New Outlook is sustained through donations. Thank you for helping us provide counseling and support to Arkansas men, women and children impacted by cancer. All proceeds received through Arkansas Gives on April 7 will support New Outlook. Plus, every donation received qualifies CHI St. Vincent for bonus dollars through a matching program, so all gifts, regardless of size, will help us continue our healing ministry.
