Dear friends and families of The Tug McGraw Foundation,
With the abrupt global onset and impact of COVID-19, The Tug McGraw Foundation has made plans for the health and safety of those we serve, our staff and volunteers.
Given the latest information and guidance from the CDC and leading health officials, The Tug McGraw Foundation is suspending all events, volunteer opportunities and The Tug McGraw Programs at the Veterans Home of California, Yountville until further notice. Team McGraw will be working remotely and responding to emails and phone calls throughout the work week. In addition, we will be posting, tools, resources and some very special "Surprises!" to get you through the "Hunker Down Stretch."
Knowing that many of our readers are Brain Cancer patients, the National Cancer Institute has posted information on:
Coronavirus: What People with Cancer Should Know.
The Latest Update on the Coronavirus
The Latest Update on Research and the Coronavirus
In my own search for answers today, Veteran James Hasson's article reminded me of something we must never forget-Hope. "Every great tragedy brings stories of individuals who ignored their interests to protect others. The story of the coronavirus pandemic can be the strength of our communities. Social distancing doesn’t mean that we no longer live in a society — far from it. We’re all in this together."
Team McGraw is here for you! We will continue to monitor the situation, share updated resources, follow recommendations from the CDC and other health officials. Lastly, we want to thank all the first responders, healthcare providers, leaders and our military who are on the frontlines fighting the fight for us.
Ya Gotta Believe,
CEO, The Tug McGraw Foundation
