President of the Orléans Health Hub Fundraising Campaign

“Nature offers both what nourishes the body and heals it, and fills the soul, heart and mind with wonder”. Pierre Rabhi, French writer and ecologist (free translation). This quote confirms the need to bring nature inside health care establishments, because it helps them become more humane and therapeutic. This is the reason why I have been part of the Foundation since 2012."

"Access to nature should not be a privilege, it is a need. Hence my motivation to join the Foundation and make nature accessible to those who cannot visit it."

“Since I was a young boy, I have had a passion for plants and gardening. It was totally natural for me at retirement to embrace the mission of the Forget For A Moment Foundation to bring nature inside health care facilities and seniors’ residences.”

"The campaign corresponds very well to this quote from Jean-Jacques Rousseau, an XVIIIth century French philosopher, “Were it possible to bring a man back to his natural state, we would see a happy and satisfied creature… thus nature makes man happy and good.” The Forget For A Moment Foundation fulfills perfectly this inspiration of liberty as expressed by Rousseau. And it is for us to get inspired by it!"
