Thanks to SNMH

I am recovering from breast cancer surgery performed at the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital by Dr. Minor Ward.

This letter is my public thank you to the surgical staff, Breast Imaging Center, oncology and radiation departments, Dr. Ward’s office, the attending nurses and everyone connected with Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.
