"From the moment we  opened...our staff and volunteers have been the embodiment of what it means to be PROUD," said Russell Etherton, Legacy Montrose Community Relations Manager. "We live and breathe PRIDE here at Legacy, every day in every way." 
Etherton and Director of Patient Outreach/Access Trilena Amos (2nd and 3rd from left) spoke to BASF Texas employees about being effective, inspiring LGBTQ allies. BASF donated $2,000 to Legacy!
