I am writing to thank you and all the dedicated doctors, nurses and technicians at Cooper University Hospital at Camden for the outstanding care I received during my recent stay.
In late July, I was admitted to Cooper’s ninth floor Oncology unit, room 910. I had breast cancer and required a mastectomy. I also have osteogensis imperfecta (O.I.) type IIII, which, as you well know, has its own problems.
I had a wonderful surgeon, Dr. Karen Hendershott. She, along with Christina Hunter, RN, Nurse Educator, put together a plan for my care. Nurses and technicians were asked to volunteer to take my case. They all learned the Dos and Don’ts of O.I. patient care, so I didn’t have to worry about someone coming in my room and pulling an arm or leg and maybe causing a fracture.
I can’t say enough about my nurses, Zofia Kapron, Lavi Michael and Tracy Renolds, and the techs, Rosa Lopez, Anna Ivizary, Kim Price, Kelly Walsh and David Thomas. I had the Best of the Best.
Also, my sister Maureen was always there to be of help and give advice if needed, and they were wonderful to her as well.
Please let my team know that I do have my life back, just like they said I would. I didn’t need chemo, so my recovery took about three months and I’ll be monitored closely and take a pill for the next five years, but I’m back to my old self and so very grateful to my friends at Cooper University Hospital.
Very Truly Yours,
