Post Your Message of Recovery and Hope

Dear Friends--

I came up with the idea of taking the new I Chose To Live Recovery T-Shirts and allowing people to sign it with message of hope when I travel to speaking and awareness events. My goal is to fill one shirt and then move onto the next one. These shirts will be posted to the new I Chose To Live website coming soon.

Please post your (short) message and your name. I will then post the message to the shirt and take it with me when I travel..

If you don't want to use you name, initials are just fine.

Post here or on the facebook fan page.!/topic.php?uid=128634537023&topic=12773

Please spread the word and the message of hope and recovery!!

Thank You,

Patrick Bergstrom
