A Note From Rhianna’s Mom
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
I first heard this quote at a United Way event, and I thought it spoke clearly to our fundraising efforts. We are truly grateful for the thoughtful and committed who remain strong in our lives. I thank each of you who continue to donate on behalf of Rhianna. Many of you have been supporting our efforts since the beginning over 14 years ago. As I speak of longevity, words cannot express our appreciation for the dedication of Sue and Brad Wilson. Their hard work has now brought us a promising breakthrough to a cure. As they continue to care for Kirby each day, they have remarkably found the energy to kick it up, set a goal and make this breakthrough a reality. May they be blessed with ongoing strength and courage.
I must not forget that within our small group are the researchers, many of whom have dedicated their lifelong careers to finding a cure. Without them, change would not be possible. To each of them, my heartfelt gratitude and all of Rhianna’s very special smiles.
My hope soars. Thank you so very much.
