Jessica wrote, “I had leukemia when I was 5, and I go to the children’s hospital clinic where I am treated yearly for a check-up/ survivorship meeting. I saw this in the playroom/waiting area this week while I was in for a check up. These check ups are always very sobering, because while I had it relatively easy compared to most, there are always others there who are visibly fighting for their lives. Its especially heartbreaking because they are children (and some, babies). Some days its easy to become anxious about my past and my health, but this artwork made me realize that there is nothing wrong, everything has happened the way it should and the experience has really empowered me!”

Lauren wrote, “As a longtime reader, I’ve left many notes, but had never found one. Last week, I went on my first work trip for a new position as a property manager for a sorority. My car broke down on the trip up to Albion College in Michigan, leaving me stranded on the side of the road for hours, missing important meetings. When I finally reached the facility, I found my first-ever OB note! It made me smile, and I really needed that shot of confidence.”
