Dearest Friends of MedicAlert Foundation -
As we celebrate this season of gratitude, I want to personally give thanks and introduce myself. As the new President and CEO of MedicAlert Foundation, I am honored to be serving you and your families during your most critical times of need. Whether you are a parent of a child with severe allergies, an adult with underlying health conditions, or the caregiver for a loved one with dementia - we appreciate the opportunity to serve you and value your commitment to our charity and the services we provide. It is always humbling to hear your stories about how MedicAlert has made a difference in your lives. Those stories make me feel incredibly proud and grateful to be leading this organization.
Our staff commits their selves daily to living out our mission to protect and save lives; therefore, we understand better than most, the fragility of emergency situations and their effects on the family. While our mission may be large, we bear witness every day to your health needs and are inspired to continue furthering our services to you. On behalf of all us here at MedicAlert Foundation, we want you to know that we are grateful for the important role we play in your lives and your overall safety.
On the eve of this year's day of thanks, I also want to express our sincere appreciation for our donors, our partners, and our employees. Together we have been able to do extraordinary things, and without your support, we are unable to execute our life-saving mission. Know that as I count my blessings this year, you are among them.
I hope that as you gather with your families and friends tomorrow, that your hearts would also be filled with grateful abundance. May you be blessed with a safe and happy holiday.
On behalf of our Board and staff...Happy Thanksgiving.
