I am so proud of the huge heart and mind she brought to healing. Every patient deserves treatment from people as engaged, brilliant and hard-working as my mother. She may be tiny – just 5' 1/2" – but she was a giant in her field.
And now I'm excited for Ellen's next chapter, which I hope will be full of laughter, learning and great adventures. Love you, mamma!
