My story — Diane Whittington

By Diane Whittington

My story is short and sweet. About 28 years ago, in 1984-85, Dr. Ian Hay treated me for Graves Disease, over-active thyroid. I was 4 months pregnant when it was discovered, which didn't seem to be a good thing. Dr. Hay, I am forever grateful to you for everything you did. You told me at that time, that the cases of a pregnant woman with Graves Disease were rare, but your knowledge, wisdom and compassion saved my life and my baby's life. All those long trips to Rochester, and elevator rides to the 18th floor were worth it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
