Thank you for your kindness and generosity towards our family this year. We are so grateful for your help in flying R’s brother here so that he could be a donor. Most recently, thank you for brightening our boys’ Christmas. They were so distraught to learn that their dad needed to be readmitted on Christmas day. The gifts helped to ease their sadness. For that alone, we owe you a debt of gratitude.”


I want to thank you so much for your generous contribution to our son’s medical expense fund…As you are aware the expenses and demands can be overwhelming. Your support for our battle with this disease is greatly appreciated. Your foundation is an incredible tribute to Michael. Early on last year he received a bag full of goodies at Miriam and grew particularly fond of the soft hat which he really needed (with no hair in February!). Again my sincerest gratitude for your generous gift and my best wishes for continued success with the Michael H. Flanagan Foundation.


I am a patient at Tufts awaiting a transplant on Valentine’s Day. Today my nurse brought me a very thoughtful and useful bag from the Michael H. Flanagan Foundation. Although I was having a difficult day dealing with nausea, the gift brought me great joy. I felt God’s presence in the form of your loved one’s legacy. I smiled at the incredible “goodies” you provided with the intent of making this journey just a little bit easier. Mission accomplished!! Thanks so much for your generosity, courage, integrity and faith. I suspect Michael was a special man.


With each item taken out of the bag, it filled my whole family’s hearts with joy! Your kindness will never be forgotten. Your family and Foundation will always be in our hearts.


In January I received a check from your Foundation. It has helped us out a great deal. I put it towards my COBRA payment and that’s a great help. Saying thank you just sounds like it is not enough. But thank you again for all you have done and thank God for people like you.
