On behalf of the Great Comebacks® Advisory Committee, I want to thank everyone who shared their story with us this year. Each year, the quality of applications just gets better and better, making it all the more challenging for the committee to select our recipients. In our mind everyone is a winner and has a remarkable story!
Over the next few weeks we will be posting the personal stories of this year’s regional recipients on our community pages, in hopes that their stories will add to the voices already there in helping others know that they are not alone and that their lives can be full again. We also will be reporting on some of the exciting events that have been taking place this fall.
To those of you whose stories were not selected this year, we hope that you will continue to update us as your personal journeys continue. And, we will be providing new ways for you to add your voice to our efforts and those of our many partners, united in providing support to people struggling with these diseases and transitioning to life after surgery.
