Which positive outcomes that BBF is responsible for that make you most proud?

I am so proud of the conversations that are continuing in the bootheel surrounding infant mortality.  We have been able to raise awareness, engage partners and community members creating a strong network to support families and infants.

2020 has been challenging, but there are silver linings. What is something you have to be thankful for this year?

This year has been very challenging on many different fronts; however, the events of 2020 have also given us reasons to be thankful.  As we scrolled through our news and social media feed, the stories we saw were a constant reminder to cherish those we love and the importance of coming together as a community to spread help and kindness where it is needed most.
