ROOFTOP HEALING GARDEN AT ADVOCATE LUTHERAN GENERAL HOSPITAL

Click on button above to learn more about the Healing Garden.

Jack’s Fund is dedicated to healing not only the body, through the funding of promising research, but also the spirit. Recently the first Jack H. Marston II Memorial Healing Garden was established at Advocate Lutheran Hospital in Park Ridge, IL. The garden, the first to be supported by Jack’s Fund, serves as a peaceful spot of restoration for those receiving melanoma treatments.  The healing garden is viewed from the windows of eight chemo bays and the nurses tell us patients specifically request and reserve  those bays on their treatment days.

Jack H Marston Healing Garden

“Nature heals the heart and soul, and those are things the doctors can’t help.
That’s what the garden is all about — healing the parts of yourself that the doctors can’t.”

Each year families who have been affected by melanoma are invited to gather at the “Family Tent” to meet one another and our committee members.

The tent serves as a place of respite, offering food, coffee and friendship to those whom melanoma has touched.
