"I'm not sure there are sufficient words in my vocabulary to express my appreciation. I was embraced by wonderful staff at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, which was so important during an extremely stressful time. From the moment I entered your facility, I was being cared for by the most competent and professional people in every area. . . I will never forget them, and there is no way I can adequately thank them. . . I cannot help but think that my swift recovery is due in part to the good care, and I am forever in your debt."
