The 2014 annual conference was wonderful. You missed one of our best if you were unable to attend. Within the 3 days we had 100 + or -.   

Many new people attended and received good information to go back home with for medical help.

The speakers were very good, as well. 

Each speaker called home office and asked for "topics" that would help best at this point and time.  We assisted them and it turned out great!
  1. Dr. Mary Ann Cooper spoke on how to obtain a doctor who knows how to treat you. She gave us information we did not have and presented her topic well.
  2. Ron Holle gave a wonderful talk. He even brought pieces of petrified beach sand which was the result of lightning activity. It was amazing to learn each piece had a circled hole in the center.
  3. Dr. Phillip Yarnell a neurologist from St. Anthonys Medical Center spoke on the neurological sequela of lightning effects on our body. 


     Each support group was hosted by skilled persons.  They ran smoothly.  We are hearing that many were greatly helped in these sessions.

The annual auction was supported in a fantastic way.  Those Virginia ladies do a great job with our auctions each year.

Thanks to all who helped in any way.  

Steve Marshburn, Sr. (for)

Stacey Thompson, Secretary

The free pizza party went very well, too.  Papa John's sent over 30 pizzas plus 8 pans of cookies. All of us complained of eating too much.  Ha!

The management and staff  at MainStay Suites appreciate our mission and that is reflected in our rates and  service.
