We’ve enjoyed great family vacations, parties, delicious meals and a lot of conversation. People who have supported us are far too many to list here, you all know who you are. I would like to thank the Drs. and staff at DFCI and NYOH Patroon Creek. A special thank you to Drs. Maria Theodoulou and Duncan Savage, who are two of the most compassionate and caring physicians you will ever meet.”
