Sanford Hospital has given me the opportunity to fulfil my dream of using my talents to comfort people and to have a real, positive impact on people’s lives.  This has given me immense personal fulfilment. Having the Sanford Memorial Garden project in my portfolio has also been a great boon to my career because of the great size and scope and visibility of the project, and the financial support of my livelihood has been so helpful in my career. I cannot thank Sanford enough.
