A Letter from Dr. Menard
Dear valued patients,
As many of you know I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma, a rare blood cancer. I would first like to thank all my patients on continuing to support Nanook Dental during my illness. Your support has allowed my staff to stay employed, and I feel blessed to live in a community that cares and continues to support me as I battle this life changing condition. I have finished all my sessions of chemotherapy in Fairbanks and will leave for a bone marrow transplant in Seattle on April 3rd. The transplant is a grueling process that involves 100 days of care in Seattle. Although my lymphoma is not curable, the stem cell transplant gives me the best chance for a long remission.
Please thank all the dentists that have covered the practice while I received my treatment as they have volunteered their time. I feel extremely confident in their abilities to provide great care in my absence. Barring any unforeseen setbacks I should be able to start treating patients again in late July. For information regarding my treatment and progress you can visit my caring bridge website at www.caringbridge.org
