shelly-dusicGetting this grant and the recognition that comes with it, gave credibility to what I thought was once just an impossible dream. Not only did this grant help me to tilt with the windmills, but it allowed me to open doors, of communication, of friendship, of partnership, and create a community of wellness that is dedicated to serving others. It inspired me to try new things and do further outreach and in return other projects that I took on this year were more successful as well. I was even invited to attend an event at the United Nations for World Cancer Day. When one person invests in your dreams, it enables you to dream bigger, do better and become more than you ever thought possible.
