On April 8th, many in the SOSL community came together for our 10th Annual SOSL Day!
As we share our stories of loss and memories of joy, we were reminded that one step at a time, one day at a time, in community, healing happens! It warmed my heart to watch how the participants connected with one another, and to see smiles on their faces and hope in so many hearts as the day ended. Our closing ceremony included writing down our hopes and wishes for the upcoming year. Research shows that if we write these dreams down, they are more likely to become a reality!
Below is a photo of the hopes and wishes of some of those who attended SOSL Day. We look forward to seeing them come true this year.
I want to extend a huge thank you to our panel: April Barnett, Patty Hathaway, Michele Madden, and Ross Jones. We were all touched as they shared their stories of loss and healing with great heart and authenticity. We are grateful to Linda Hunt for leading our Candle Lighting ceremony. We appreciate all that Mike Kurtz has done for SOSL over the years, for emceeing the event and serving as panel moderator!
Once again many were generous with an outpouring of support that came prior to the event, as well as the day of the event. This is so important to SOSL, as we are able to continue with our support programs because of our donors.
We always want to acknowledge our event Sponsors who continue to support this event year after year!
Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital * Union Bank * Starbucks Coffee.
We are blessed to have a strong survivor community of mutual support where hope springs in our community of healing!
