HLC Chats With Guðjón Sigurðsson

Thank you Guðjón for participating in our ALS Awareness Month campaign! The Hope Loves Company team and our Young Ambassadors were very fortunate to meet Guðjón when we visited Iceland in July of 2017 to share HLC's mission and programs with the Icelandic MND Association. Since then, Guðjón has been one of our greatest friends and supporters! Thank you, Guðjón!
