Arkansas Gives: Tim Orellano’s Story

Tim OrellanoCHI 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.

Tim Orellano said New Outlook is a blessing to Arkansans.

“My hero was Freda Heard who championed New Outlook and what it does for people recovering from cancer. New Outlook pioneered giving people a new outlook as they recover from the effects of cancer. It is a tremendous ministry and is the only one of its kind in Arkansas to help women and men cope with the psychological and physical effects of cancer,” Orellano said. “People diagnosed with cancer are dealing with enough challenges. Through New Outlook, they have free access–regardless of where they are receiving treatment–to wigs, breast prostheses, mastectomy bras, head caps, emotional support, etc.

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.
