Martell Foundation's Roxanne Johnson, and Pamela Lambiase, who leads Vanderbilt-Ingram's Patient and Family Care Program, presented several quilts to VICC last week. The "Touch Quilts" are the brainchild of singer-songwriter Aaron Barker, who got his musical peers at Country in the Rockies to touch them, autograph them and send good wishes to patients through them. The quilts were donated to Country in the Rockies by their makers, the "Scrap Bag Ladies" of Tri-Cities, Wash. Country in the Rockies is the signature event of the T.J. Martell Foundation and supports the Frances Williams Preston Laboratories at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.
