Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson is a childhood friend of Cherie Stannard who was paralyzed in a car accident on September 30, 2010. St. Hilaire Nelson is an Orlando area fine artist who called on her network of artist friends in order to put together a fundraising book.
"Art with Heart" is a 52-page book that features artists from all over the country as well as internationally. These artists all donated one image to be published with their contact information in the book. St. Hilaire Nelson hopes that everyone featured in the book might know someone who would purchase it.
The cost of the book is $55.95, it's a hardcover, image wrapped, full color on premium paper. The proceeds ($12 per book) go to Cherie's family for modifications to her sister's home (adding ramps and widening doorways) so that Cherie can live with and be cared for by her sister and brother when she returns from rehab in Atlanta. Cherie's siblings have had to quit their jobs and attend rehab with her so that they can learn how to provide her 24-hour care. The family will be spending Christmas at Shepherd Center this year.
