Hi, I am Sandy Strong and am pleased to serve on the ISN Board of Directors.
I retired from Northwest Airlines (NWA) in 2004, after 45 years of service. In 1986, I helped organize the Special Friends project at NWA to benefit some of the handicapped clients of area social workers. That project continues today. I enjoy traveling, singing in the choir, and making quilts for our local crisis nursery.
I understand illness from many different perspectives. One of my sons was born with a rare disease, tuberous sclerosis, that causes tumors in vital organs and often affects the central nervous system. Also, I am a cancer survivor, and my husband, Sid, has heart disease.
Sid serves on several boards, so I have attended the board meetings with him for many years. We have been longtime friends of Gene and Shelley Ensz, so I have watched the development of this website from its very first page, as well as the outgrowth of the ISN.
I take the responsibilities of being a board member seriously, and I must admit I feel a bit daunted by the many challenges and opportunities it entails. But I am honored to be part of the ISN, and I will do my utmost to make good decisions on its behalf. My email address is [email protected]
