In Their Own Words"I became a Healing Patch volunteer because, like the children and families we serve, I lost my father early in life. I was only 10 when he died of a terminal illness. I felt alone and isolated and had no one to relate to. I was unable to grieve because I wanted to be a normal kid. Volunteering for the Healing Patch has brought me great joy in making sure that the children and families we serve to not feel alone and to find the peer support that they so desperately need. Surprisingly enough, being a volunteer has helped heal my inner child as well!"
