It's been just over a year since my wife Sara passed away, and as we go through Giving Tuesday I just wanted to let you all know how much I remember all of the kindness and help you gave to me and my wife. May you continue to be blessed with the strength and peace to continue to help so many people. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and have a wonderful Holidays and New Year.

Hi Stan! It's good to see…
Hi Stan! It's good to see you. I can only imagine what this last year has been like for you and hope the grieving is getting more manageable every day. GRACE is well and we have a couple of new staff, young, smart, media savvy women who bring such good energy to Grace. Thank you for thinking about us. I thought of you yesterday when I came across an old post. I think I can say this for everyone, you are a perfect example of why we do this and appreciate your kind words. Take care of yourself, Janine
I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.

It is so good to hear from you, and my sentiments are the same as Janine's. You are definitely why we do this, and we truly appreciate your kind words. Happiest of holidays to you and yours. ~Denise

Good to hear from you, Stan!
Stan, thanks so much for sending this very kind note. It is because of people like you and Sara that we are so tirelessly dedicated to our mission of helping to educate and empower patients and caregivers. Your very gracious participation in our end of the year Board meeting last year still resonates with all of us, and I expect always will. From all of us here at GRACE we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a fulfilling new year :-)
