Can there be a more important gift? We are each an ambassador of healing and hope. I was reminded of this powerful truth when Sue, a housekeeper at our Center City campus, shared a thank you note she received from Josh, a patient who stayed on Sue's unit. "I came to Hazelden broken and not knowing what to expect. You immediately vanquished all worry and made me feel safe and comfortable. I do not know if I would have been able to hold it together without your support." Can there be a more important gift we share? Like Sue, whenever you take a moment to lend an ear, open your heart and offer your support, you can make all the difference in another person's life. Respect, compassion and understanding are founding principles and standard operating practices at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation—carried forward each new day by employees like Sue and supporters like you who power this amazing, healing organization. In this newsletter, I'm honored to introduce you to a few more of our remarkable ambassadors of healing and hope: Seven-year-old donor Matthew D., who gives to our Children's Program because he wants other kids in families hurt by addiction to know they're not alone Mary B. and Jeff B., who give to our Fellowship Club programs because they want other families to experience the care and support their son Hayden B. received Alumna Carrie B., a three-time Olympic gold medalist who gives because she knows that sharing her truth inspires others to reach out for help Alumna and super volunteer Theia J., who gives because being of service keeps her heart open and her recovery strong Today, I ask for your support, too. Your gift to our Mission Possible Fund will make a lifesaving difference for the individuals and families who turn to us for the care they need and deserve. Thank you for giving generously to the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. It's your involvement, compassion and generosity that make us who we are: an unshakable force of healing and hope.
