We appreciate all of our volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to Purple Community — we couldn’t do it without you! Each quarter the Purple Community Team highlights a volunteer who has gone above and beyond their call of duty as our quarterly Purple Community Angel.
“Volunteering has provided not only a way to feel helpful, but to learn new skills, take on new responsibilities and, most importantly, meet other enthusiastic volunteers with a shared commitment. Seeing the progress being made in research, funded in part by Purple Community activities, is what keeps me involved. I lost both my parents to cancer and I have a dear friend who is living with Multiple System Atrophy, a disease currently being researched at VAI. I am convinced that disease management opportunities, and eventually cures, will be discovered right here in Grand Rapids at VAI and that provides my motivation for continued involvement.”
