(added after a numbered AC4P band was given...) This band is worn by a father of a young woman whose mental health crises are repeated, and at times debilitating. Since taking his daughter to a VT alumni event for potential incoming students, he was offered an AC4P band and has since been given this numbered band. The young woman was hospitalized prior to graduation, then recovered to complete high school and went on to complete an undergrad college degree, married, has a child and maintained a marriage for years! Though there continue to be ups and downs, this family is maintaining a healthy relationship!
