Isn’t that what it’s all about? Family. Friends. Work. Play. Love and support.
For so many of us, our disease robs us of community. We lose our ability to work, even to go out to most places. Friends drift away. Family members leave us or love us from a distance.
That’s why EHN hosts Thanksgiving dinner every year. One evening where we can gather with food and friends, some with our families, in a safe space.
This year was wonderful. With nearly 20 people visiting from all over the San Francisco Bay Area. EHN provided the Turkey and trimmings (many thanks to Whole Foods Novato for their gift card donation making this possible), Board members and volunteers and guests cooked much of the rest, decorated, setup, cleaned up, and contributed to the potluck that rounded out the feast.
