Arkansas Gives: Patsy Wallace’s story

Patsy WallaceCHI St. Vincent is celebrating 20 years of New Outlook Cancer Recovery Program. And you can give more to New Outlook when you give on 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 on Thursday, April 7, between 8 am and 8 pm, and selecting CHI St. Vincent as the recipient of your gift.

New Outlook was one of the first resources Patsy Wallace, BSN RN CURN, sought out when she was diagnosed with cancer in 2014.

“I needed the education and support from the center. Alesa Garner was instrumental in providing peace and comfort during this most difficult time,” Wallace said. “New Outlook provided hair services from shaving my head to providing my wigs. This center was also a resource for my mother [Patricia Morgan] who was diagnosed with cancer at the same time; we both sought out education information and hair services! My mother and I are so grateful for the services New Outlook provided!”

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.
