Cure VCP Volunteer Shout-Outs, Karen & Jean

Meet Karen and Jean!

The Cure VCP Disease organization is predominately driven by hardworking, dedicated, and caring volunteers. And, there’s no time like the present to THANK our superstar volunteers, Karen Traxler and Jean Roland.

They work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure our donors are thanked. So, chances are, if you’ve made a contribution to the Cure VCP Disease organization in the last year, you’ve received a personal thank you from one or both of these terrific ladies. Karen personalizes each letter she sends out, honoring the person and their gift to the organization. Jean is gifted with beautiful handwriting and takes the time to write personal handwritten notes to our supporters.

Karen is also Nathan’s Aunt. She is humble, quick-witted, and talented. She doesn’t have the disease, but her family has been severely impacted because of it. Karen is proud of her nephew, Nathan, and wants to help support the organization by thanking those who have partnered with their family and the organization in this journey.

Jean is a friend of the Pecks from Florida. Her family doesn’t carry the VCP gene but it’s her way of sharing her love for the Peck family and encouraging all who support the efforts of finding treatments and a cure for VCP disease.

Thank YOU, Karen and Jean, for sharing your talents with the Cure VCP Disease organization!

We love you and APPRECIATE YOU!
