The Edie Hand Foundation helping out for the Holidays

The Edie Hand Foundation engages volunteers to help out at Christmas time with delivering gifts to children in Hospitals throughout the state. One young woman Edie met in her visits was Chance Williams. Here is a photo of her and note from her mother, Dawn Williams.


I am the mother of six wonderful children and lost my job just 8 wks ago. I am a certified nuclear med tech. My old bosses decided they wanted to get someone who they could pay less. I have been doing this 20 yrs and was paid well for those yrs of experience. Anyway, I'm so glad for people like you who God puts in our lives just at the right time.

It meant so much for Chance to meet you, and know that people she had never met before meant so much to her. Even though she is seventeen, she has enjoyed the games and cards you gave her. She loves the pajama pants. I won't be able to give her much this year, but we are very thankful she is not paralyzed after her accident. We all have each other and that's what counts.

Thanks again for everything. I hope to read the book soon. We still have to put up our tree and get ready for Christmas break. My kids are out of school after this next Tuesday. I'm sending you a picture of Chance sitting in Santa's lap that we took earlier today. We have only been back home in Montgomery for 2 hours. It is so glad to be home. Thanks,

Dawn Williams, B.S.,C.N.M.T.
