Why We're Grateful
This Thanksgiving, as we reflect on the extraordinary journey we've undertaken with our supporters, it's impossible not to express the deep gratitude we feel.
In this blog post, FLCCC co-founders Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory, along with FLCCC’s Executive Director, Kelly Bumann, share some of the heartfelt reasons why your unwavering dedication and generosity fill our organization and those we serve with profound thanks.
Dr. Paul Marik, Chief Scientific Officer
“I am grateful for the ever-expanding family of FLCCC warriors, who value medical freedom and embody the values of compassion, kindness, and love.“
Dr. Pierre Kory, Chief Medical Officer
I am deeply grateful for the people who surround me in my present life — the ever expanding network of contacts, colleagues, friends, donors, researchers, and intellectuals who I have the honor of having personal relationships with — some distant and sporadic and others daily and close but each one supports and nourishes me as they represent, in my opinion, the absolute best of humanity at a time when humanity appears to be devouring the world (or allowing itself to be devoured).
So many, like me and Paul and Umberto and Flavio and Joe, suffered immeasurable attacks and betrayal and loss of livelihood and reputation … but all have kept going and, if anything, are fighting harder.
I know that at the end, I can rest knowing that I was a proud and active member of a movement of deeply engaged humans who managed to resist when everything was collapsing. They are made of the stuff of the greatest who ever lived and are the heroes born among ordinary men whose light shines brightest in the darkness.
Kelly Bumann, Executive Director
Thanksgiving is about getting together with family and friends and expressing appreciation for your life, health, and loved ones. At FLCCC, we believe we are one very big family working together. Our work could not continue without the thousands of committed doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals, scientists, and everyday heroes who have had to become their own health advocates at a time when our health systems can not be trusted.
We are richer in our unity and inspired by the community we have started to build. Together we will offer hope through dark times and solutions where there may seem to be no good options. That is the gratitude the entire team at FLCCC wants to share with you all!
