The events of the Hungary Family Summit in Budapest last week were incredible, especially as one of us, an American, received the ONE OF US Federation European award. I wanted to share this great news with you, and to invite you to learn about Dr. John Bruchalski’s journey by watching this short video introduction, which premiered in Budapest!
On May 27, in Budapest, Dr. John Bruchalksi from Tepeyac and Divine Mercy Care in Fairfax, Virginia, was awarded the ONE OF US European award for his work at the service of life, along with a cash price of 10,000 euros. The Jerome Lejeune Federation is a member of the ONE OF US (“OOU”) Federation, a consortium of life advocacy groups in Europe.
Thierry de la Villejégu, vice-president of the ONE OF US Federation and managing director of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation in France, presented the award. He shared that Dr. Bruchalski’s work in defending the dignity of all humans is truly inspiring, and one that certainly deserves recognition:
“The ONE OF US Federation would like to grant you this award in order to honor your commitment to life and human dignity by creating the Tepeyac Family Center, one of the largest free-standing pro-life medical practices in the country where your team offers a safe haven for women in crisis pregnancies, spreading hope through authentic health care, one that respects the natural processes of the woman’s body and the right to life of the unborn child. Thanks to your work you contributed to save thousands of babies. By receiving the ONE OF US Award you would contribute to attest and embody that every life matters and counts.”
It was inspiring to see Dr. John Bruchalksi receive the award from OOU, which symbolizes that America is indeed a land of brave individuals who are fighting and defending everyone’s right to life, from conception until natural death.
The Jerome Lejeune Foundation was proud to be a part of recognizing Dr. Bruchalksi. As we continue in our work, we are proud to stand with such incredible individuals in defense of life. Thank you for supporting the foundation, and for making our efforts possible. Please continue to support us!
