A big part of my recovery has been getting out of my own head and focusing on others (Principle #10: Connecting). Being open to learn and share and pursuing my interests helped me get and stay on track.
How I learned about Partners In Health
One of my favourite things to do is watch documentaries. It’s important to see life from other people’s perspectives. I also love honest stories.
In October of 2017 I saw the documentary Bending the Arc. It shares how Partners In Health began, the incredible hurdles they’ve overcome and the life-saving work they do. This documentary is beautiful, sad, funny and true. But most of all it’s full of hope.
How you’re supporting Partners In Health
Bending the Arc made me want to raise awareness and funds for Partners In Health. I want to support people who don’t have access to healthcare.
Through your purchase of It took me 10 years to lose 10 pounds, you’re making your health a priority and helping Partners In Health achieve their mission: “… to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.”
Bending the Arc is about a friendship that changed the world.
