The family would like to extend a thank you to Dr. Crevier, the Ascension Cancer Center, Froedtert Oncology, and Hospice Alliance for the care and compassion you have shown to Vickie and her family. Benjamin, I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me, from the numerous appointments to getting doctors to understand “this is my wife, what are the side effects?” You were ‘stellar’ in every sense of the word. Jean Prince, my sista Blu, I am at a loss for words. What you did and how you were there does not compare to any biological sister I ever had.
