The Mancha family would like to thank UTSOUTHWESTERN and their staff for the warm and loving care they gave us while we were there. Dr. Farber and Dr. Kodi, it was a great honor to have both of you caring for our mother when our mother needed you the most. We will be forever grateful to have met two wonderful doctors who cared for our mother as a person, not a patient.
Thank you to all the family and friends that went to Dallas to be with us when we needed you all the most.
