Chapel Hill Elementary Help Brighten CancerCare at Titus Rock Garden


A group of special students, teachers, and PTO parents delivered smiles and some beautifully painted rocks to CancerCare at Titus on Wednesday, January 31st to help bring joy to patients and

family members who are dealing daily with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis.  Students from Chapel Hill Elementary School participated through their art class in a project to help build a rock garden at the local cancer center.  Hundreds of stones were donated by the Chapel Hill PTO for students to paint during class.  Art teacher, Mrs. Beth Odom, helped students theme their designs and ensure variety, the results of which were an artistic display of hope and joy.  Dr. Barjinder Singh loves that the community has embraced the CancerCare at Titus center.  He shared “We are so blessed to have these Little Angels share their art with us, it will lift the spirits of both our patients and our team each day.”


On Wednesday, members of the Chapel Hill Elementary Leadership Team, led by Mrs. Neeley Eargle and Mrs. McKinsey Grubbs, delivered the rocks and

placed them in the rock garden area surrounding the center’s flagpole and Community Library and Food Pantry boxes.  It added color and warmth to the entrance as patients come and go for treatments and appointments.  The team at CancerCare at Titus were grateful for the donation and welcome other local artists that may want to add to the display.  “We not only provide oncology care here, we support patients in their journey.  This area embodies the hope and joy we want to share with each patient and their loved ones.  It warms our hearts to see these young people supporting our patients and this will be a lasting reminder of their act of kindness.” Stated Laura Walsh, CancerCare at Titus Executive Director.
