I have known Tresa VanWinkle for several years. My relationship with CAPPED has been to help with donations since June 2011 through my Carolyn Rose Grant Fund in memory of my late wife.

As a registered nurse who has kept her RN status current, I have continued to be impressed with her knowledge not only in health matters but her ability to manage a non-profit organization consisting of a board of directors and also daily volunteers from the local community who come in to help. Tresa is a very capable natural counselor with clients who have been diagnosed with cancer, and she has organized an extensive library of alternative solutions. She has been a big help to me in various matters.

My monetary contributions for just this past 12 months has been: $24,455. My contributions have funded for the past 2 years the Bucket Hats and sun glasses for the CAPPED Sun Safe Program created for the local grade schools.. They also allowed purchase of a new color printer to create the Sun Safe pamphlets and also obtain projection equipment to ensure trouble free presentations at the schools. My contributions have further provided the refrigeration units for each new office in Phase II remodeling of the CAPPED Center for Integrative Health Care. In addition, they include my Sustaining Angel Fund amount of $100/month for this year.

As a self-employed electronic engineer, health journalist and counselor, my personal in-kind contribution is my continuing encouragement, collaboration and technical advice.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage the NM state capitol in Santa Fe to quickly resume their grant funding for CAPPED to survive!
