With gratitude

When I needed medical attention, the B.C. medical system proved to be the organized group needed to save my life.

When I needed medical attention, the B.C. medical system proved to be the organized group needed to save my life.

There are a lot of people and organizations that participated in my recovery, from those who recognized the value to learn CPR and went into immediate action assessing my need and starting CPR, the first responders, the Vernon Fire Department, whose quick arrival and use of the fibulator brought me back to life, the ambulance service who got me to the Vernon hospital, the entire fifth floor of doctors and nurses who did their magic with every day smiles and positive attitude, the ambulances to and from Kelowna and the doctors and nurses in Kelowna whose expertise will allow me a normal life in a couple of months.

So it is an elephant-sized thank you for your life’s dedication to give us continued life.
