Heywood, Melissa M.



Behavioral Health

Thank you to all my family and friends who supported me on this journey. Thank you to Scarlett and Sebastian for all the hugs and snuggles that kept me sane. Michael, thank for your love, patience and eternal optimism (and late-night Netflix binges). Thank you to mom and dad for your unwavering support and emergency babysitting. Holly, thank you for your daily telephone therapy and constant medical advice. Thank you to my aunts for their support and encouragement, and for making me smile (even when I didn’t feel like it). Elena, thank you for your witty, sarcastic texts and for not letting me take life too seriously. Lastly, thank you to my incredible Lourie Center cohorts for all your love, friendship and support.
