“I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you what a difference you’ve made in my life. You helped me not only to regain some physical capabilities but also to find, and nurture, an acceptance of what this body of mine can reasonably do… Your calm, competent care has empowered me and I so appreciate that. Thank you for everything.” – Barbara J.
