Coping with illness

To the Journal editor:

I want and need to make the public aware of the pulmonary and cardio facility on the sixth floor at Marquette General Hospital. I have been going for six months now and would not be living the life that I do today if it were not for the special staff that are there: Larry, Jeff, Greg, Adam etc.

Their knowledge, motivation, caring, concern, humor, friendliness, etc. I could go on and on. I look forward to my rehab days even though it is not all easy exercise etc. I have COPD but, with their help, live an active and happy life in spite of COPD.

I hope they all get the thankfulness and recognition they so deserve.
