Every single day, all over the country, lives are saved and improved because of you, because you are a committed, talented and passionate volunteer. I always say I have the best volunteers and I couldn’t mean it more. I could not do my job without you, the volunteers. You take the time to advocate on our behalf whether it is clicking the button, picking up the phone, writing a letter or coming to meet with your legislators. You share your experience with friends and family and get them to advocate. Some of you have even started your kids out advocating young by walking around at Heart Walks and getting postcards filled out. So during National Volunteer Week, I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU!

We have made great progress in Massachusetts, but I look forward to what is next. I hope you will stay committed and passionate because I believe we will make the Commonwealth the place to achieve ideal cardiovascular health and with your dedication I believe we will!

Thank YOU!
