OUR HOPE & VISION

Aimee and Laney

Aimee

It has been an absolute blessing to be a part of an organization that is changing the lives of people all around the world. As a volunteer for the Foundation’s Paws for Patients program, I get the chance to help people going through difficult times in their lives with my therapy dog Laney. As a filmmaker for the Foundation, I also have the privilege to meet with patients and share their inspiring stories from our medical missions and surgical programs.

Recently, my own newborn baby had to have a small procedure to remove “tongue-tie” aka ankyloglossia. Although this is a small procedure that I’ve witnessed performed on our Medical Missions, it was very emotional for me to know my little boy would would need it. So of course I turned to the Foundation. There is no one I would trust more with my child other than these incredible heros.

I am asking you to please donate to the Capital Campaign and help us create a permanent home for the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation. By having a home base, it allow us to grow medical services for people in need.

Thank you for your support!

Laney

Laney is the official therapy dog for the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation’s Paws for Patients program.

This special program was launched in March 2019 to provide comfort and care to our patients as well as to raise awareness for mental health.

By scheduling virtual appointments, Laney has visited thousands of people including both individuals and groups all over the world in the past year. 

Laney needs your help in supporting the Capital Campaign. The Capital Campaign will create a home base community center for the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation and it will allow Laney to help more people in the community.

Maria

My job title says I am a “Surgical Technologist,” but more than anything, I am just someone who is trying to make a difference when and where I can.  My name is Maria Moran, and I am blessed to be able to say that I am a part of the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation.  I have been on four medical missions with our surgical/medical team.  I have stood by the sides of our doctors and have helped change the lives of people all over the world who needed it the most.  The moments I spend with our patients, especially the moments after surgery when our patients wake up and realize their lives have just changed for the better, are the most cherished and proud moments of my life.  OHNF has given me the opportunity to have those incredible moments.  Being able to work with these doctors, some of the best surgeons in the world, brings me more pride than I know how to express.

I chose to join Team Laney to support the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation in a new way.  Laney and her incredible handler, Aimee, help bring awareness to an issue I am deeply passionate about, mental health awareness.  Laney helps those patients who are struggling more than just physically.  People can sometimes forget the mental burden that comes with illness or any physical ailment, no matter how small.  Laney and Aimee bring warmth to people’s hearts when it seems to them that nothing is going right.  The unconditional love and attention from an animal is so meaningful and reaches across so many platforms.  The bond that Laney and Aimee have is extremely special and their relationship transcends not only through screens, but through struggling minds to boost people out of despair and into hope.  I cannot think of a better team, or foundation, to support those in need around the world.
