Dear Stephanie,

My apology for this long overdue THANK YOU! I wanted to reach out and extend my sincerest gratitude, thanks and LOVE for all you have done to help me in my journey to heal.

It was just about a year ago that I started with you to assist me with my back issues. After spending several sessions together, it was apparent that my issues were worsening, and you encouraged me to return to my doctor to get some updated MRI films Your experience brought me back to my doctor at which time they recognized the severity of the progression of my scoliosis.

We worked together on a plan along with my physicians, continued with pre-surgical strengthening therapy which was an integral part of preparing for this very involved corrective spine surgery. You, along with Helen and Rena helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. Your encouragement, professionalism (including a lot of funny stories) and knowledge helped me to progress in my healing and for that I am forever grateful.

Each time I wanted to give up you encouraged me more, provided empathy, caring and a lot of laughter even when I just wanted to give up. This is truly a gift and I feel blessed that I was able to be given the gift of you and your staff during this challenging process. I would not be where I am today without all of you.

Today, after 9 months post-surgery I am participating in Pilates classes, walking and able to function independently. Each step in the right direction provides me with the additional courage needed to take the next step forward and pursue new challenges, I think it will be some time before I can do the Jump class (LOL) but I will take what I am doing now and continue to work on reinforcing those skills, so I can become stronger each day.

Please extend my sincerest thanks to all of those that participated in my care. You truly have been an angel in my life.
