Our volunteer team meets regularly to discuss ways to improve our outreach efforts and keep our Facebook groups/teams/members connected. We take your thoughts seriously and make improvements/changes/new policies whenever issues, ideas or concerns are shared. We are an incorporated nonprofit organization. We do not have a membership fee, just a suggested donation. Volunteers offer their gifts and talents to help us reach our goals with as little costs as possible. Donations help to cover website fees, logo designs, writing, publishing, newsletters, printing, gifts of appreciation, Love Kits to those in need, webinars and online events, and other costs.
We juggle much with our extensive outreach efforts through CVO, SCwSG, shipping Love Kits, working with volunteers all over the world, speaking, singing, book signing events, SCwSG/CVO radio program, helping our local food pantry/church and running our certified foster/adoption home. THANK YOU for your consistent help, support, friendship, trust and love. My humble life goal, born out of brokenness and a desire to please my Lord Jesus Christ is to help and love as many people and animals as I can... it's all I live for.
We had our first CVO gathering in Colorado at SCwSG/CVO headquarters in May 2011. Rochelle Ray, co-founder of CVO, and her family stopped in for a long weekend of good food, fun and fellowship. Our team enjoys yearly retreats to gather for more of the same. I treasure your thoughts, posts and stories. So let's stay connected and work together to help people and animals, and be sure you visit all our web pages to get the info you need. We appreciate your feedback.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
It's a dream come true because when I was diagnosed 25+ years ago, there was nothing and no one to turn to. I don't want anyone to ever be in that lonely, confusing and scarey place. I hope you enjoy watching the Mystery Diagnosis TV show that aired a part of our cryoglobulinemia story. They did a great job explaining it. We think it will help patients, medical professionals, family and friends get a better idea of what cryoglobulinemia is.
When you've been through horrific suffering, it really keeps what's truly important in focus; with no energy or time for anything else so we make every moment count and treasure every kindness! CVO's best days are just ahead. Let's stick together because we are better together.
Stay Warm, Strong and Courageous,
