Dear Editor

Dear Editor,

Dr. Maureen Marks [Patient Doctor, Summer 2013] has inspired me beyond all imagination!

I am 62, soon to be 63, and I am finishing my second master’s degree; this time as a professional counselor. I plan to go on to a doctoral program in clinical psychology when I retire from my current job in 2015 as a professional nurse.

Your story opens up many possibilities and stretches my imagination for how I may pursue my dreams. I too am full of energy and could work another 20 years or more.

God bless you, Dr. Marks, and continue to shoot for the stars.
