Susan and Raymond Ancypowic
You don’t have to be blood related to be family. Our unsung hero for the month of April is both Susan and Raymond Ancypowic. Mom and pops have opened up their hearts, and their kitchen, to all of us “kids”. Ray is a front line hero protecting the midstate during this pandemic. From drive through covid-19 testing, to helping facilitate narcan distribution, to drug take backs and second chance record expungement; Pops always makes sure you are in the know. Susan, or mom as we all call her, opens up her home for “family dinners” (which are 5 course meals), her back yard to allow annual slip and slides, and reminds us every year to get a flu shot. Wether it’s a recovery date celebration, a baby shower to welcome a “latest edition”, clothing drive, or an event to support the recovery community you will see the two of them there. They speak without judgement and are always quick to lend a hand or an ear. They are what a healthy loving relationship and family is for many of us that don’t have that in our lives. They remind us that no matter what day it is, everyday is a new day.
