We realize, as Survivors, sometimes the energy simply isn't as robust as our hearts and our passions. We understand, admire and respect the priorities of family, friends and simply living life to the fullest, as it should be...so please don't volunteer more than what you can comfortably offer, without jeopardizing any other commitment in your life. There are many, many survivors who are working as hard as forty hours a week and many who can only do several hours a month. That is fine...we can all contribute in our own way...WE are the ones who will make the needed changes!
Between all of us, we should be able to move mountains...and win battles...on our terms...one life and one family at a time...
Please contact us in order to volunteer!
