Random Acts of Flowers Delivers Encouragement
to Stanford Hospital Patients
When Camille Kennedy enters patient rooms at Stanford Health Care, she is reminded of the isolation she felt when she was admitted to the hospital after an unexpected trip to the Emergency Department.
“When you end up in the hospital, you may find yourself in a place you did not plan to be,” she said. “You think your life is going one way, and it takes a turn.”
These days, Kennedy uses her experience as a patient as motivation to help break through the isolation other patients experience. Kennedy is executive director for Random Acts of Flowers Silicon Valley, an organization that delivers recycled flowers and encouragement to Stanford hospital patients each month, and to patients at hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the Bay Area.
