Thank you Hope & Cope!July 31, 2009
For the past four years, Hope & Cope, a volunteer-based organization located in Montreal offering support to patients living with cancer, has helped YACC organize Retreat in Quebec with their generous donation. Not only the organization helps financially, but through the support of his Executive Director Suzanne O’Brien, this organization has helped us grow by providing their expertise, counsel and participation to many of YACC’s events.
Suzanne herself, as well as other staff members of the Wellness Center and volunteers of the organization participated in the planning and the facilitation of our Retreats and Conferences. Words are often insufficient to express gratitude, but to everybody at YACC’s and for all the Retreaters who have attended an event in the past, we want to say thank you!
Debbie Bridgeman, a volunteer at Hope & Cope, chair of the Young Adult Division, and three time cancer survivor joined us Sunday night at our last retreat to receive a plaque honoring the contribution of Hope & Cope.
