When my diagnosis came, I felt I was at the best place and knew I had a great medical team, Dr. John West, Dr. Justin West, Dr. John Link and Donna Valentine. I can’t say that I am still not scared at times when I get some aches and pains but I know I can pick up the phone and my team is there to help me along my Bend in the Road.
