The Christmas Blessing (2015)

Author Kevin Kruse said, Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being. During our time at the HCMC Burn Unit we were giving hope and being there to embrace families in need. The age range of patients we helped and the varied stories of how they were burned compounds the emotions we all experienced.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

–Maya Angelou

 From gentle presentations of the gifts and Esera’s soft music and sweet voice to the sound of tearing wrapping paper and holiday laughter… we took their breath away. Staff felt our love and support; patients felt a moment of relief; families & caregivers felt appreciated; volunteers felt energized to do even more; the media personnel captured a true vision of giving back and being present.

If your news year’s resolution is to be more involved in the community or to give back, we invite you to join us in 2016 as an event attendee, a volunteer or as a partner. Email us your interests!

When we come together to do GOOD, good things happen.
Merry Christmas!
