I've been talking a lot to friends and famliy about how I feel it's impossible to work for a non-profit and not become passionate about the cause. I run our company's Facebook page and within three weeks, we've gotten over 250 members. We had a woman post that she was just diagnosed at 30 three weeks ago with three young children and she found our facebook page and felt lost. I directed her to call our office and learn about the programs that we have for newly diagnosed clients. She send me a personal message saying:
"Thank you so much for taking the time to care about me. I really feel lost with this diagnosis and your page has been a source of hope for me as I learn about this disease. I will call the office first thing in the morning. You've given me so much already - you've given me hope."
Hard not to feel good about something like that. I swear I will hug that woman if she comes into this office.
