Someone to talk to

Thanks to Kathy, Lizzy has someone to talk to.

Lizzy was referred to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley by her third grade teacher. She lives with her mother who is deaf and when asked why she wanted a Big Sister, Lizzy simply said she just wanted someone to talk to.

Kathy, who has already been a Big Sister to 5 other Little Sisters over 30 years, was the perfect person for Lizzy to talk to. The moment Kathy and Lizzy were matched in 2012, their relationship began to grow.

Lizzy and Kathy like to have fun through a variety of activities. They’ve been to The Nutcracker, Jumpies in Troy, and Ohio State University to see the campus and to enjoy a play. They also love to go out to eat, bake, garden, and walk Kathy’s dogs and even helped with The American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

Lizzy said, “Kathy is like a real big sister. I can talk to her about anything!”
