Many patients want to hear from other patients. One way of achieving this is to highlight patients in our new ‘Patient of the Week’ blog. Time allowing we will ask many of you to share with fellow patients some of your keys to success.
Congratulations Lynn! You are doing great and you are the ‘patient of the week’!
