To start off I'm glad to see that this discussion group can openly reach out and touch hearts and lives. I've been a caregiver now for some 23 years to my husband Dale Briggs. In June we will mark 53 years of marriage.
In 2010 I was named Mended Heart of the year and have been overwhelmed and humbled by this. I serve as an ARD in the western region and have met some pretty amazing people. It is their zeal that encourages me and their desire to help happy people who can reach out across the lines to those who are in need of support and encouragement. Mended Hearts means the world to me and I will continue to love and encourage those in and out of the organization.
