In mid-July, I read an article about this heart-melting project. It was within a day or two of finishing this oil painting. VoiceLove puts the voice of loved ones into ICU rooms, even when visitors are not allowed. When you pick up a seashell, you can hear the ocean. It kind of felt like poetry.
The doctors behind VoiceLove Project are getting these speaker devices into ICU rooms, allowing critically ill patients to hear the voice of their loved ones… sharing hope, love, and words of encouragement. All the things someone fighting for their life needs to hear. They provide a direct line of communication between families and patients. These devices don’t require nurses to facilitate the conversations.
Incredibly compassionate people using their brilliance for good… I imagine this is the stuff superhero movies are made of.

Two doctors have turned to walkie-talkies originally designed for children to address a heartbreaking reality in the ICU: Families aren’t allowed to visit.
