With the sun shining and the beautiful flowers blooming at the Barn at Valley Forge Flowers, More than 140 people came together to help plant the seeds of Healthcare, Hope, and Healing, and to celebrate CVIM’s 17 years of providing medical and dental care to families in need.

It was a beautiful evening filled with making new friends, wonderful food and hearing a heartfelt story about one of our patients, Jen. Jen has end stage liver disease and was in the hospital that evening. Although she was unable to tell her story herself, she still wanted it to be shared. In her own words, “CVIM has saved my life – they have provided me with the best medical and dental care at a time when I had so little. I was given excellent care that was provided with kindness and compassion by every person I interacted with.” Unfortunately, her story is too familiar to us at CVIM. Our patients are hardworking individuals, many who work multiple jobs that struggle to provide for their families.

To the attendees and volunteers who helped make this event a resounding success – THANK YOU for your continued support and for making possible our mission of providing healthcare, hope and healing. A very special thank you to Barbara King, President of Valley Forge Flowers, and Mrs. J. Maxwell Moran for hosting such a beautiful evening for everyone.
