Now that elections are over, a huge thank you needs to go out to the advocates against Measure 1. Yes, we may all be tired of hearing about it, but this needs to be said. Over the last 13 years I have been a patient of Dr. Dahl, Dr. Christensen, and Dr. Cain. I will tell you first hand the kindness, compassion, empathy and devotion that these individuals have is immeasurable.

Leading up to the elections there had been so many negative slams against them. The hearts of these individuals for their patients and their work is unmatched. It is a rarity to find as-committed ones as they are. To go out of their way, put their reputation on the line, and take more time away from their families to fight for our rights and do the work that they do, deserves a monumental thank-you!

I know they could not do this alone; there are countless others that deserve a heartfelt thank you as well. So, to all those who fight for us all, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
