"Facing a lifetime of managing lymphedema can be a depressing – even frightening – situation. As a breast cancer survivor of 22 years, I was shocked to learn that the battle was still going to be a part of my world. What seemed like a happening out of the blue, my right arm ballooned up overnight. I set out to research every available medical resource, visiting every website for the right person to guide me through this new storm. I made calls, spoke to several people at hospitals and clinics – and then I came upon Huyen Vitale’s website – and I knew that I was home. When I called to make an appointment, I knew I was in the right place when I spoke to Stephanie. There was an instant connection and a genuine sense of friendship. I instinctively knew she was there because she cares. It was the most welcoming feeling I have ever had when I reached out for help to a medical office. Because of that, I almost expected the feeling I had when Huyen came out to greet me at my first visit and her smile went straight to my heart. It was like the sun bursting out of a cloudy sky. There was more power and promise in that beaming petite woman than an army of doctors. And I have learned more about having a healthy life from Huyen in the brief time we have spent together than I have learned from numerous physicians in over 20 years. Huyen is unique because God has blessed her with the special soul of a true Healer. Beyond the knowledge and skill required by her chosen field, her genuine caring and compassion for every person in her care envelops her patients in a feeling of comforting confidence and unwavering trust that enables us to do whatever it takes to restore our health. I know in my heart that Huyen will be one of my true soul buddies forever. I can ask anything and the answer will be a combination of wisdom and love. Her touch channels total positive energy, her decisions made with the same care she would devote to her own family. God has had His arms around me through every joy and every heartache in my life. When this new challenge confronted me, I asked for help and He led me to Huyen. If you want to fully understand why I say that, all you have to do is meet her, bask in the warmth of her smile, and feel her love and healing energy envelop your spirit. Like me, you will know that everything is going to be all right!" -G.M.
