Dear Dr. Dechet,

Normally I hate waking up before 11am. I am not a morning person, it’s just not in my DNA. Call my mom right now and she’ll pretend she’s been up and busy for hours, but it’s not true.

I have tried to trick myself into liking to wake up early, but so far it’s been a bust. The only day I can seem to manage to wake up and get going at the painful hour of 7am is on Friday’s. Friday mornings I volunteer in the outpatient surgery waiting room on the 3rd floor of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. You are never here on Fridays, but today you are. I know this because I saw your name on the hospital schedule this morning.

Ever since seeing your name I have been full of gratitude because today, right this moment, you are treating and healing someone. A few years ago, you treated and healed someone for me.

Thank you.

With ALL the love in my heart,

  1. Your so wonderful Brookie. There are some really powerful and very good people who can help people and do every day. You too heal people there by noticing them and loving them kindness is a medication they truly need almost just as much as the treatment he gives them. I love you and hope to see you tonight. Love your bro. Marky
