Victoria Velinski, longest serving volunteer (17 years strong!)
In honor of Resilience’s 45th anniversary, we’re celebrating the people who make #OurResilience possible and telling the stories of some of our biggest supporters, starting with our volunteers.
“I remember my very first [emergency room] call like it was yesterday. After the call was finished, the survivor's mother grabbed my hand and said ‘I don't know how we would have done this without you.’ After everyone left I was walking out of the hospital towards my car and I could hear the theme song from the movie Rocky in my head. I truly felt I had made a difference!” –Victoria Velinski
