Letter to the Editor: Thanks, MCMC

— To the editor:

Thank you, MCMC. My husband had a colonoscopy on June 5,2013. We thought it was just routine, but when Dr. Ann Rust came in after the procedure, she said that she found a big tumor in his colon. From that moment on we were in a whirlwind of so many thoughts, he is 67 years old, born in The Dalles, my first love at age 15 and OMG, he has cancer.

That was the beginning of our story, but here is the best part of our story: We had the best surgeon (team) you could ever assemble and they took out the cancer and he is so lucky because he has no after surgery treatments to face.

We are so grateful to the wonderful people (surgeons, specialists and the most wonderful fourth floor staff you could ever want.)

We live in Maupin and love it here, and now I know that if we need care, it is only 40 minutes away. Thank you MCMC for taking care of us.

Joe and Kathi Ringo
