Thanksgiving is that time of year with expressions of gratitude and thankfulness for those in our lives. For some people, it’s extremely difficult and maybe even a bit complicated and we understand. For others, it’s a time for harvesting the strength to push forward and allow more time for healing and we understand. It’s a day in the journey where we pause to share the attitude of gratitude for the little things in life. On behalf of all the members, patient advocates, and the C Diff Foundation family worldwide, we send you and your family our warmest wishes, Happy Thanksgiving.
It’s hard to believe another year has caught up with us and here we are preparing for the
Thanksgiving holiday and reflecting upon the days that have passed by in 2016.
During this year we have been expanding across the nation and reaching far away lands
meeting great people like you who are devoted to “Raising C. diff. Awareness” with
the C Diff Foundation. “Thank you for joining us.”
We want to extend our gratitude to you and everyone for the very warm welcome this past
year. In our travels, and communication we get to discover many organizations doing really good work. The ones that are successful have a unique mission and a clear understanding of how to carry out that mission. Some organizations, however, rise above the rest and just seem to possess special ingredients not found in the others.
The C Diff Foundation is one of these exceptional organizations, and its special ingredients
are what makes us so proud to be a part. The first of these is our outreach programs. Offering patients and their families avenues to gain support and information is vital and greatly needed during a C. diff. infection and during the recovery time from a C. diff. infection.
The second special ingredient is the dedicated volunteering members and staff around the globe, most of whom have been faithfully serving our Foundation since the formation in 2012. “Thank you for all you do for the good of others.”
The third special ingredient is you and all the Volunteer Patient Advocates worldwide with the financial supporters who see to it that our mission continues spreading with promoting the “Raising C. diff. Awareness” program along with the many programs in place to make you and your communities stronger than ever in C. diff. infection prevention, treatment , support, information, and environmental safety products available. We are truly grateful.
As we work together today, and in the coming year, seeking opportunities to bring hearts to a mend through the C. diff. Global Community Support Program, we hope to speak with you by telephone via: Teleconferencing sessions or in person at a local event. We are in the process of scheduling support sessions worldwide right now, so please let us know if you are interested in participating by contacting us by phone or through the website.
There are tele-conference sessions hosted monthly by
Dr. Caterina Oneto, MD and Dr. Paul Feuerstadt, MD to discuss the Who, What, Where of C. diff. infections, and additional sessions offered throughout the month
to discuss financial support, pharmaceutical information, bereavement, anxiety and
depression, nutrition, and general information sessions to speak with others who
truly understand the diagnosis and able to discuss how to work through it.
Register for a free support session by calling the
Nationwide Hot-line 1-844-FOR-CDIF or by accessing the registration page on the website
We also encourage you to introduce others to the C Diff Foundation Nationwide Hot-Line available: 1-844-FOR-CDIF for information and support.
“Support is only a phone call away”
As we come together with friends, family, and strangers– let us reflect on our own thoughts and reflections of gratitude and let us light a candle to signify “hope” – the shining light that we see in the shadows when turmoil and struggles occur.
The days may becoming shorter during the winter months on the horizon but our light of “hope” for better health and stronger days has never shown brighter than today.
Thank you for sharing the C Diff Foundation’s gifts with others worldwide.
“None of us can do this alone – All of us can do this together!”
