Written by her daughter Anna M. van Heeckeren
Some very sad news was that my mother – Doris van Heeckeren – past Board member and then Honorary Board member died unexpectedly following a near drowning experience in Hawaii November 13, 2012. Not surprisingly, her death took its toll on me and my family, but it also took a toll on One Health Organization. She was such an ardent supporter in so many ways. The last of which was hosting the 2012 Boutique event and selling handmade items she quilted lovingly to sell with 100% of the proceeds to support the work of One Health Organization. She is missed by many. My family and I are so grateful for all of the cards, Facebook posts, and donations in her memory. Thank you.
Side note: If you or someone you know want to memorialize a One Health Family member you know (either a person or pet), please consider making a donation of $10 or more to One Health Organization.
