I just wanted to say thank you, for helping in saving my sons life. My son was at UCSF from 12/08 to 3/09. He was diagnosed with a rare encephalitis with an MDA receptor. You came on board and with the help of Carol Glasier, Dr. Terry Hutchison and the rest of the UCSF staff you saved him. It was a horrible experience for me to go through, but I was blessed to have all you wonderful doctors helping my son. The plasma pheriesis worked!!! My son Dylan is doing great, back to school, was able to move up to the 5th grade from the 4th. Words cant describe my gratitude to you! I was able to thank Hutch, Carol and the other staff at UCSF but I wasnt able to say thank you in person.....so here it is "thank you!!!" God bless you! We love you and you will always be in our thoughts and prayers!
