Vail Daily letter:Treated me so well

Denise England
Vail, CO, Colorado

As a resident of Aspen who has spent limited time in Vail, I would like to thank the people of Vail who supported me at my lowest point physically and emotionally.

Hearing the dreaded words “You have cancer” turns your life upside down. Where would I go with no treatment available to me in Aspen?

After agonizing months, I came to Shaw Cancer Center and Jack’s Place.

To be honest, I had a bit of an Aspen superiority complex. Boy did you set me straight.

During the six weeks I spent in Edwards, I met the most amazing, dedicated, professional, caring people from doctors, nurses, radiation therapists, trainers, yoga instructors, restaurant and store owners and the entire staff at Jack’s Place.

Your friendliness and caring is unparalleled. You will always have a special place in my heart. You healed not only my body but my spirit.

I wonder and hope if the tables were turned, Aspen would treat you the same. With heartfelt thanks.

Denise England
