Life saved by dedicated staff at CTMC

Words cannot express the deepest gratitude that I have for the Carson Tahoe Medical Center EMT and ER staff on duty Aug. 14 around 7 p.m. There were five EMT staff that arrived at my home in less than 15 minutes of our call to literally save my boyfriend's life.

Please forgive me - I did not get your names - you deserve the highest honor that this town can give to you. Without the supreme experience and quick thinking of Dr. Jack and Steve in the ER, I am certain Dan would not be alive today. With tears in my eyes, thank you.

Meiling Wong, an ICU nurse there, needs to be nominated for Time magazine's woman of the year. Meiling, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for being here and saving Dan's life.

Dr. Vijay Maiya is one of only two doctors in this process that has given us hope. Kindness does matter when it comes to talking with patients who are looking in your eyes for hope. Dr. Maiya, thank you.

Without the above mentioned staff and those at the hospital who truly care, Dan would not be alive today. We are not going to give up.

We want to thank those people out there who believe in miracles and want to take that extra time to care. These are the people who make the difference in the world. Never give up.
