"While in the hospital, patients have so many people coming in and out talking about them, talking to them and talking with them. It becomes so exhausting for patients to answer, that often being quiet and listening is the easier way. Dear Heart can be their voice. It can be their outlet from all the noise that is being filled with medical terms, diagnosis, and worries. It can be their therapy, and a time to break from the noise, and reflect on their life, their goals, their family, and whatever happiness they have inside of them. Dear Heart opens patients' eyes to thoughts, feelings and ideas they may not be able to find, until they read it themselves."
-- Sheryl Edelstein, LMSW, Cardiac Inpatient Social Worker
"Dear Heart is a wonderful outlet for heart disease patients looking to discover, reflect upon, and release their feelings. While free-form journaling can be therapeutic, this journal provides patients additional benefits of the focused, yet serene task of intertwining the meditative effects of coloring with introspection about their past, present, and future as it relates to their heart disease. As a social worker working in cardiac rehab, it would give me great satisfaction to know that my patients were using this coloring book journal."
-- Nicole Saia, LICSW, Cardiac Rehab Department
