Monthly Marketing Update
- November 2019

This week I am feeling very nostalgic. We are having a big celebration Friday to celebrate 10 years in business. WOW- a decade!!! In reality it is 11 years, but this is the year we decided to have the party. Last year, my team member and friend passed away and it did not seem appropriate to celebrate anything related to work. But this is the year to celebrate- I feel it, and I am putting that into the universe. So many of our sponsors and community partners have been part of our “story” as we have now grown into 4 guides serving Oregon and Washington. Thank you to everyone who has shared a guide with a family, provided a testimonial about of services, and to all our sponsors that make it possible for us to provide a comprehensive resource in the local community.

We are excited to schedule a new CEU event for the case managers of Virginia Mason in the Spring. Early Registration is now open for our 2020 sponsors. Sponsors are encouraged to create an education poster for the event, this allows case managers to receive CEU credit for attending. All funds from the event will support patients in need.

Nuggets of Knowledge


“When something bad happens, you have three choices: You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you. ” – Dr. Seuss

As I write this newsletter, we are awaiting results from my husband, Lyman’s scans last week following six months of chemo; hoping that his cancer has not spread. No matter the result- this will not define or destroy anyone in my circle- including him. And more than anything it has showed us what he is made of, what I am made of, and what my team is made of... for that I remain grateful.
