Vail Daily letter: Indebted to you all

Frederic P. Nordstrom
Vail, CO, Colorado

I’m writing this letter to convey my heartfelt and most sincere thanks to all of the people that are responsible for my current good health and successful battle against cancer. I feel confident that due to all of the help you gave me that in the future I will be able to enjoy all of the activities I’ve enjoyed in the past.

First of all, if it wasn’t for my good friend Buz Didier taking me to the Vail Valley Medical Center, I wouldn’t be here writing this. Thanks, Buz Man!

During my three weeks in the hospital, everyone there was so helpful and supportive. Thank you!

Especially inspirational while I was beginning my recovery was Dr. Francoise. He helped me realize that my will to live was just as important as the treatment.

God bless my son Eric and daughter Bay. Both of them sat there with me during the three most difficult weeks of my life.

After my release from the clinic, I began my chemo and radiation treatments, which Bay, Eric, Margo and Roger made sure I got to the Shaw Cancer Center to receive.

For the past two and a half months, they got me there five days a week. I’m so deeply indebted to them for being there for me. Words can’t convey my feelings for all of them. Bay, Eric, Margo and Roger have been my guardian angels, and I love them all so much!

Thank you to all of the people at the Shaw Center. They have kept me alive. The entire staff – greeters, nurses, technicians, doctors. All of you. I wouldn’t be here without you! To Katie, Dr. Hardenberg, Dr. Urquhart, and my three special ladies from the Radiation Department, you made my daily treatments so easy during a difficult time.

A giant, special thank you to Margo and Roger for taking me into their home to recover.

Bay, Eric, Margo, Roger, without you guys, I would not have made it through this challenge. I love you guys so, so much! Thanks!
