Repost: Appreciation from (and to) a Recent Graduate

By Dr. Melanie Chandler, HABIT FL Director, @drmelaniechandler

Fishing Lures

We just finished two back-to-back HABIT Programs in Jacksonville (to make up for the downtime earlier in the Spring with COVID restrictions). We are tired, but happy. All of the appreciation shared from staff and patients/partners for the Program made me think of this post from 2019.  Thus, I'm sharing with you again a wonderful message a graduate and his wife wrote to us in a thank you card.

Dear Drs. Chandler, Oskarsson, Tran, and Michelle, Miranda, and Carolyne:

Imagine an entire team of compassionate professionals focused on helping our loved ones live their best lives. Over the last 10 days, these dedicated super stars taught us "how to fish" so we could actually take the steps, make the commitment and start down the path to live our best lives. 

Thank you for all you have taught us and for showing us this path.

We admire you and will always appreciate how you have made a differences in our lives.

With much gratitude,

Linda & Marc

Linda & Marc -

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives and journey! Facilitating HABIT truly allows us to get a sense of purpose and fulfillment in our lives. For that, we thank you, and all our HABIT Alumni.
