“Soon after making my request to speak with a volunteer who had been through a similar experience, I received a call from a lovely lady named Mary. I really appreciated her empathy when listening to my struggles and concerns. I will always remember this caring, warm, supportive, lovely lady and the positive difference she made for me during a very difficult time in my life.”
