Thank you Nancy Dysart

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a celebration of Nancy Dysart. Nancy just retired from working as the Philanthropy Officer and Director of Healthcare Charities' Children's Miracle Network of Eastern Maine Health Services. All of which means that she led the efforts to raise the money that made the services for my son possible while he was in the neonatal intensive care unit in Bangor.

What an inspiration. I have never met a more positive and loving person, or anyone more passionate about helping children. Though Nancy has helped tens of thousands of families, she always manages to make each of us feel special. Her memory for people and their stories is astounding. It was wonderful to listen to her daughter's tribute to her and to learn a bit more about the woman who has helped so many.

Many blessings on your retirement Nancy! Thank you for all you have accomplished on behalf of miracle families in Maine.
