The first of 4 Care Packages (wagons & fun filled backpacks) delivered to Rocky Mountain Oncology.
I don’t look at wagons the same anymore.
When my kids were both little, they loved to be pulled around the yard and neighborhood in a wagon or fill their wagons with treasures as they set out on their little neighborhood adventures.
And then, Ali got sick. And a wagon became central to our universe.
Today is December 15th, or as I will always remember it now -- Diagnosis Day.
Some of the memories from that day are crystal clear: my heart pounding in my chest, tears that wouldn't stop, the sound of the doctors voice as I tried to make sense of his words.
A beautiful Christmas gift from caring people
On December 1, I had the honor of sharing Ali's story with an incredible group of compassionate, caring individuals who gave a beautiful donation to Ali’s foundation as a Christmas gift to their amazing physicians. It was emotional, it was therapeutic and it was the beginning of a new friendship between the Ali Shae Pink Rose Foundation, and our new Platinum Sponsor, the Wyoming Surgical Associates.
I am so delighted to announce that Dr. Jason Strand has joined our Board of Directors at the Pink Rose Foundation!
Dr. Strand grew up in Casper and graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine in 2006. He is board certified in family medicine and is a fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. This month, he has opened his own direct primary care practice, which allows him to spend more time with each patient to listen to concerns, answer questions and even make house calls when necessary.
