Patient Stories

With profound appreciation, Thomas

Thomas Jackson suffered a massive seizure due to a brain tumor he didn’t even know was there. He arrived at the University of Vermont Medical Center Emergency Department unconscious. Jackson's road to recovery was difficult and he was so thankful to UVM Medical Center staff that he wrote a letter thanking them, describing in detail the care he received during the most difficult time in his life.
