A note from our Executive Director
Hi there, Friends!
I’m back and caught up! I want to thank everyone for their patience while I was on maternity leave. My family and I are appreciative of the time we were able to spend together. We had a great time at Morton Family Fun Day a few weeks ago! Below is a picture of us at the event, which was wonderful!
Happy Fall! This season is a favorite for many people. It’s likely because of the cooler weather…but mostly attributed to the changing leaves. I have to admit, the leaves are beautiful in the fall (but I prefer warmer weather!). Much like the leaves changing for the season, we have experienced some changes here at CURE. I am so thrilled to introduce Bridget Sadler, our new Community Coordinator. She is a long-time supporter of CURE and is personally familiar with the services we provide to families. She’s a dynamo and has an incredible amount of energy (I’d personally like to bottle some of it up for myself). In addition to running the events here at CURE, she is also the JV Women’s Field Hockey Coach at Irondequoit High School. I know, how does she do it all?! I’m excited for all of you to get to know her as she acclimates here. Another exciting announcement is that our Parent Advocate, Adella, is joining the staff here at the office as our Program Coordinator. (Don’t worry, families, she will be at the hospital on Fridays still and even better – you’ll see her at programming events). This change is positive for CURE because it will enhance the relationship and communication between the hospital and the staff here at CURE. Adella is working on new programming and enhancing our current programming, so I can’t WAIT for you to see what is coming!!
As September closes, I want to thank everyone who offered support and advocacy for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month. The visual representations of support mean so much to our families – letting them know they are not alone. We, the Rochester Community (and beyond!), are there for them and will provide support however we can.
Thank you to everyone who has been a friend to our organization. I look forward to seeing many of you at our 10th Annual Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch. Tickets are still available!
Happy Fall Ya’ll!!
