Dr. west head and I had some history due to my substance abuse but she was dead set on giving me the best chance... I did not agree with her at first but it's years later and I'm so glad she was the one to make those choices... Because of this choices I was led down a path of life a second chance... And Dr. Westhead I don't know if you'll see this. But I thank you so much!!!
