in Bloom, Inc. |
Hope in Bloom is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which plants gardens gratis at the homes of breast cancer patients.
This new endeavor was born as the result of the breast cancer diagnosis and untimely death of Beverly Eisenberg, a close childhood friend of Blue Plate Communications’ principal. Beverly and Roberta developed a love of gardening and spent many hours planning and planting their gardens.
The power of plants goes back to 3000 B.C. when the Chinese recorded the first list of medicinal herbs. Gardens have been proven to be therapeutic sanctuaries offering both comfort and hope to meet the emotional and psychological needs of patients and their families.
A Hope In Bloom garden will provide breast cancer patients with a beautiful, tranquil place to sit, reflect and escape from the world of doctors, hospitals and sickness. The plan is to create a life affirming indoor or outdoor garden oasis or landscaped patio for any breast cancer patient who requests one. All will have symbols of life including color, texture, fragrance and sound incorporated into their design. Each garden will be tailored to a patient’s residential situation and lifestyle.
