Thanks, Doc

Editor:

Thank you for sharing the information about the advancement of quality cancer care in Humboldt County ("The Cancer Collaboration," Jan. 23). Reading about docs gathering around dinner tables to discuss what is possible gives us a vivid peek into the caliber of these folks, and illustrates how trust and quality collaboration happens.

The entire article was great, but I have to admit, I had to reread the most stunning phrase about three times before I could process it: "... the medical attendants dropped her while transferring her from the gurney to the scan table." (After an operation on her back!)

We are fortunate that Dr. Mahoney not only prevailed through such a stunning accident, but chose to live here, sharing her awesome talents and inspiring us all.
