This is an amazing day today in my life, and it’s not just because of the money.

It’s because, looking back 5 years ago when I just came to this office (when I was really crying, lost, very insecure, didn’t know what to do with my life after the accident happened)... since the first day that I came here, they gave me my confidence back. They give me love. They hug me like they were my family. And I am so grateful that I met these guys and all the staff from Block O’Toole & Murphy.

Today, after 5 years, it’s a good day that I came back strong. I’m glad I met Fred, Millie, Gabrielle, and Dan. They fight for me out there. And they give me fair treatment.

I was talking to Dan and I was telling him that the most important thing in this life... it’s not just the money. It is the way they treat you. They treat me like family. And I would never forget that.

Thank you so much for all the help in this journey.
