Friendship, support shared at meet and greet in Shelton

Treasured Time founder Suzanne Major speaks to supporters Monday at Ari Bella Restaurant in Shelton.

SHELTON - On Monday night I attended a meet and greet for a newly-established foundation, Treasured Time.
The event at Ari Bella Restaurant drew about 20 supporters.

The founder, Seymour resident Suzanne Major, is a woman on a mission: to provide families with a parent facing a life-threatening illness with an experience that will create lasting memories. She said she wants these families to be able "to relax, escape from everything they have to do" when a parent needs a lot of medical attention.

"The support I've gotten for this is just incredible," she said. 

Major said Monday the Foundation's first event, a kick-a-thon held Saturday at Bushi Ban, a martial arts school in Seymour, was a success. The event benefited the Lee family of Oxford.

Also on hand Monday was Major's friend, Lisa Bredice of Seymour. Her husband, David Bredice, died in June at age 47 after a long battle with melanoma. The family has three young children.

Major said watching her friend's family struggle with a terminal illness is what inspired her to establish Treasured Time. The organization has applied for 501(c)(3) non-profit status which Major expects to receive within "three to six months."

I commend Major for following her heart and establishing such a worthwhile organization,
and I wish her much success as the foundation grows.
