(09/23/2018) Great news this week! After spending his entire life at UVA Children's Hospital, 8-month old Malakai, with his new heart, is finally able to begin bonding with mom, dad and his siblings at the Yellow Door apartment.
To date, Yellow Door has served 7 families, and this past week, opened its 3rd apartment at Stone Creek Village, but we still need your help! The apartment's immunocompromised requirements include Sherwin-Williams Paint Shield, the first EPA-registered paint that kills greater than 99.9% of bacteria, including Staph, MRSA, E. coli, VRE and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure on a painted surface. The apartment's conversion includes replacing carpets with engineered hardwoods, and adding HEPA filters. Stone Creek Village management also decided to replace the entire HVAC system and all appliances. They are a true partner to our mission.
We thought you would want to get a glimpse of our Yellow Door families:
