Miracle #1

As a marine veteran I am no stranger to a challenge. Mercy was my partner as I faced the biggest challenge of my life – my battle with COVID-19.  I began to feel ill in late March just as New York City and Long Island

began to reach its peak with COVID-19 cases. From the Emergency Room, I spent time in the Intensive Care Unit, was intubated, and for weeks on end was administered expert medical care around the clock. The medical staff assured me as long as I would fight, they would as well. I received Last Rites on three separate occasions believing I would never see my family again. Then a miracle happened.  Against all odds, I began to improve and finally ended my stay in the rehabilitation department where I received daily physical and occupational therapy to strengthen my limbs and improve my fine motor skills so I could return to living a full life. I got to spend time with staff in various units with varying specialties and they were all dedicated to one goal – my complete and total return to health!   After spending 110 days in a medical center, you become intimately aware of the culture and dedication of its employees. I now feel as if I am a part of the Mercy Medical Center family. My story is nothing less than part miracle and part testament to the expert medical teams dedicated to my diagnosis, care and recovery.

I am diligent with my annual screenings so imagine my horror when I woke up not even 6 months after my last clean mammogram with a swollen breast. One call to Mercy and their doctors immediately sprang into action. I had a biopsy the next day and was diagnosed with stage 3a breast cancer. Simultaneously with receiving my diagnosis, the NYC metro area began to battle COVID-19; I too began a battle of my own. At first I cried my heart out, but I did not let the news take away all hope. I started chemotherapy immediately, my medical team was formed, and plans were quickly put into motion. I completed my chemo regimen, had a lumpectomy followed by sentinel node biopsy surgery. Thanks to all of the medical professionals involved with my care  I am now cancer free!
