Dear Dr. Burke & Dr. Zoen,
I am writing to you a letter telling you and your families Merry Christmas. I hope your holiday goes great. I will ask my mom to come and see you guys at the hospital. I miss you a lot. You guys are the best people I know. If it weren't for you I wouldn't be here with my family on Christmas day. And what you did to save me do it to other children that have the problem I have. Save those children and let them be with their family on special holiday like Christmas. I bet their parents will be happy and proud to you guys. If I don't come and see you I will always love and remember you guys.
P.S.: Merry Christmas to the Hospital and have great holidays. Have a Merry Christmas with you families."
