I feel confidentthat due to all of the help you gave me that in the future I willbe able to enjoy all of the activities I've enjoyed in thepast.
First of all if it wasn't for my good friend Buz Didier taking meto the Vail Valley Medical Center I wouldn't be here writing this.Thanks Buz Man!
During my three weeks in the hospital everyone there was sohelpful and supportive. Thank you!
Especially inspirational while I was beginning my recovery was Dr.Francoise. He helped me realize that my will to live was just asimportant as the treatment.
God bless my son Eric and daughter Bay. Both of them sat there withme during the three most difficult weeks of my life.
After my release from the clinic I began my chemo and radiationtreatments which Bay Eric Margo and Roger made sure I got to theShaw Cancer Center to receive.
For the past two and a half months they got me there five days aweek. I'm so deeply indebted to them for being there for me. Wordscan't convey my feelings for all of them. Bay Eric Margo andRoger have been my guardian angels and I love them all somuch!
