SAD NEWS TO SHARE
Lynnette, wonderful daughter of our dearly loved H.O.P.E. founding member Diane M., has passed away. Lynnette was an amazing woman. Having successfully entered long-term recovery from the disease of addiction, she was subsequently diagnosed with cancer a few years ago. She battled an aggressive form of that disease with amazing courage, strength, and success until just recently. Please keep Lynnette and those feeling her loss in your thoughts and prayers.

FACES & VOICES OF RECOVERY - ANOTHER RESOURCE
The H.O.P.E. group generally doesn't endorse other organizations, but we do like to make you aware of other resources out there. The Faces & Voices of Recovery organization's Website has lots of options for engagement (Blogs, Webcasts, etc.), and is just one of many such organizations working on the disease of addiction. Our Other Resources tab above, lists many additional resources you may want to check out.
