Product Description

OUR FEBRUARY 2007 DAB'S ANGEL IS HEATHER V. HEATHER IS LEAD COUNSELOR FOR RYAN WHITE MENTAL HEALTH HERE IN JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA.

SHE HAS BEEN WITH LUTHERAN SOCIAL SERVICES FOR OVER 3 YEARS BUT RECEIVES REFERRALS FOR CLIENTS FROM OTHER AIDS SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS WHO ARE ON CASE MANAGEMENT AND RYAN WHITE AS WELL. SHE ALSO HAS PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER SERVICE AIDS ORGANIZATIONS.

ORIGINALLY FROM INDIANA, SHE NOW MAKES JACKSONVILLE, FL HER HOME ALONG WITH HER HUSBAND AND CHILD.

HEATHER IS ONE OF THOSE RARE INDIVIDUALS THAT GIVE 110 PERCENT ALL THE TIME... SHE'S CHEERLEADER, COUNSELOR, FRIEND, RED TAPE CUTTER, SUPPORT GROUP LEADER AND ALWAYS GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY.

HEATHER TRULY CARES ABOUT HER CLIENTS AND INSISTS THAT THEY RECEIVE THE RESPECT, EXCELLENT CARE, CONSIDERATION AND ASSISTANCE FROM PROVIDERS OF SERVICES.

SHE'S THE FIRST TO LEND HER SHOULDER TO LEAN ON, AN EAR TO LISTEN, A HUG FOR COMFORT, ASSISTANCE IN FINDING BENEFITS AND MORE PATIENCE THAN ANYONE I'VE EVER SEEN. I'VE SEEN HOW MUCH SHE HURTS WHEN SHE LOSES A CLIENT TO THE RAVAGES OF THIS DISEASE... HOW HARD SHE FIGHTS TO KEEP THEM FUNCTIONING WITH QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF LIFE.

SHE'S THE CLOSEST THING TO AN ANGEL I'VE SEEN ON EARTH WITH A HEART THE SIZE OF AN OCEAN. IT'S MY PLEASURE TO NOT ONLY KNOW HER BUT TO CONSIDER HER A FRIEND.

FOR THIS AND MANY MORE REASONS, HEATHER IS OUR FEBRUARY 2007 DAB'S ANGEL.
