noun re·sil·ience \ri-ˈzil-yən(t)s\: the ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens

As I reflect on the past year, this is the word that stands out for me. Resilience.

In the face of adversity, illness and loss…people can gather up the strength to not just survive, but to thrive. Together, our support of one another is a major contributor that helps people gain resilience.

With that, let me offer you a simple Thank You from Maureen’s Hope Foundation.

Wishing you peace, happiness and good health in the New Year.

With love,
Susan Bertrand
