Simply put, today was amazing! The hard working clinicians and patients gathered at the track to share one lap together to celebrate the success of the week. Finish line smiles are my favorite! They are the reason I do what I do! I was blessed to meet some outstanding clinicians and watch extremely motivated patients this week. A day we all won't soon forget! When running a few days ago, Vlad told me, in broken English, that he needed "stimulation" to keep running. I asked what would "stimulate" him and he responded enthusiastically "raccoons!" We quickly found a stuffed raccoon to help with his motivation. Moral of the story, find what drives your patients to succeed and use it!!! Stay tuned for more celebratory pictures! We head back home in the morning.
