I live in a military community that is home to the largest Coast Guard base in the United States. From time to time, the Black Hawk helicopters use their airport and facility for training. When I turn down the road beside the Coast Guard base and see those Black Hawks parked along the outer runway, I feel safe. It’s just something about knowing they are in the vicinity that gives me a little extra reassurance. I know if a situation arises, they’ve got us covered.
That’s kind of how I feel about all the health care providers who have taken such good care of me over the past few years. My oncologist Dr. Tan and my surgeon Dr. Ruiz along with their excellent staff, continue to monitor me every year just to make sure I’m doing okay. It provides me with the reassurance that should my cancer resurface, they will still be in my corner making certain I receive the best care possible. For that I am eternally grateful. I guess you could call them my medical Black Hawks!
Let us never take for granted those in the armed forces who fight for and protect our country. May we also be thankful for those health care providers who sometimes put their own families on hold for those who are sick and need them. Both sacrifice their time to keep us safe and well. Today I just want to say thank you.
Blessings, Cindy J
