Dear ImproveCareNow Community,

After 15 years as its President and Executive Network Director, my last day with ImproveCareNow will be this Friday, July 31. It has been an exhilarating and profound journey.

The evolution of the ImproveCareNow Community has far exceeded everyone’s expectations—what you are today, none of us dared to imagine when we began in 2006. It is inspiring what the ImproveCareNow Community has accomplished—how you have improved the lives of so many. I have been fortunate to be able to work with you, to steal shamelessly and share seamlessly with you, and to experience your selflessness and compassion. I know you will continue to go far—to go further—together.

Over the years I asked many of you for your time, your effort and sometimes your money, and in addition to that you gave your commitment, your creativity and your caring. Thank you means gratitude, appreciation and caring, and I say thank you many times to you for all you have given.

“You make a living by what you get, you make a life by what you give.”

ImproveCareNow has had a profound impact on the way care is provided to children, young adults and families with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Every day ImproveCareNow helps centers provide more reliable and proactive care, and more patients feel well and live fuller lives.

I am grateful I have been able to experience the motivation, inclusive kindness and love that is the essence of the ImproveCareNow community. This Community has been like a family to me, and I will miss it very much. I wish you all ‘Happy Trails!'

'Til we meet again.
