Dear Myocarditis Foundation Friends & Families,
I am writing to tell you that I have resigned as Director of the Myocarditis Foundation. Following the birth of my daughter Cora, I realized that I would no longer be able to give 100% of my time and energy to the Myocarditis Foundation. It became clear that the fair thing to do was to step down and make way for a new Director. This was an extremely difficult decision to make, but after talking with many of you, I know I have made the best decision for my family. It is my work at the Myocarditis Foundation and particularly the work with many of the families affected by this disease that has taught me that time with family is a precious gift and that we should not take it for granted.
I am honored to have worked for the Myocarditis Foundation and proud to have helped it grow and expand in its mission. However, this Director position is just a guide; it is the many families, friends, and loved ones who have been affected by this terrible disease that truly make the Myocarditis Foundation what it is today. I plan on keeping in touch with many of the families I have worked with over the years and will always be one of the biggest supporters of the Foundation.
Currently Candace Moose will be serving as interim Director, and in March the new Director will be announced. I know I am leaving the Myocarditis Foundation in good hands and that it will continue to serve the many families around the world who seek information and support.
I thank you all for your kind support over the years. I wish the Myocarditis Foundation all the best and look forward to following its growth as it continues in its mission to save lives from myocarditis.
