Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.
Lucette emailed us to nominate her sister-in-law as Hero of the Week. She writes:
My sister-in-law Trudy took in her own brother when he was down on his luck. While going through a divorce, he made the move from Colorado back home to his sister’s place in Michigan. She helped him with all of the paperwork and through that very difficult time.
It’s not easy since they’re both in their 70s, especially now since he has just been diagnosed with dementia. But, the family has gathered around to help out.
I would love to see my sister-in-law recognized as ACC’s Hero for the sacrifices she’s been making to take care of her brother’s needs.
Well, Lucette, we’re happy to recognize Trudy as our ACC Hero!
Sometimes just being there for your family and having an open door is all that’s needed. But, not everyone does it so readily, so thank you to her for stepping up when her brother needed her.
