“The impact Helium Arts has had on my child’s life has been immeasurable. Art and creativity have brought positivity into Tiernan’s life during times when he was really struggling with his healthcare issues. Tiernan is now so excited to know that some of his artworks will be exhibited by Helium this summer. It is providing him with a real boost during what has been a particularly challenging period.”
