Though wife lost battle with lung cancer, “I will forever remember the way AAMC staff treated her.”

A letter from a patient’s husband: he recently lost his wife, but remembers the care she received at AAMC. In this beautiful affirmation, we see how our staff touched the lives of this family.

I am writing to express my extreme appreciation for everything that the AAMC staff did to help my wife during her recent illness. During her two stints at AAMC, my wife received superior care from the doctors who treated her.

As importantly, everyone – from the nurses to the techs to the therapists and other staff displayed an attitude of care and compassion that put our family at ease and let us know that everything that could be done for my wife was being done. We were treated to extreme acts of kindness and caring that truly went above and beyond the call of duty.

Though my wife ultimately lost her battle with lung cancer, I will forever remember the way AAMC’s staff treated her. It was as if they were all caring for one of their own family members, and I can’t think of a higher compliment.

Thank you again for all you did for our family, and for what you do for countless other families around the area.

    Wow! Thank you for sharing this story with us. It makes what we do a little easier to do. As I write this note, I have tears in my eyes because I do understand that what we do, as often as we do it, makes a difference in peoples lives. Our patients do become like our own family members. It is one of the toughest jobs because it takes so much out of you emotionally and physically but it is the most rewarding when we can hear or see that it made a difference and helped someone to transition through a very difficult time.
