James’s Story: Grateful Giving to Express My Thanks

“Sometimes, I don’t think twice when I see brochures in plexiglass holders,” said James Obrotka. “But I picked up Good Sam’s Grateful Giving brochure after I rang my ‘radiation finished’ bell. I wanted to show my gratitude to everyone who cared for me by making a donation to the hospital.”

James, who lives in Warwick, came to Good Samaritan Hospital for prostate cancer care. He said that he needed specialized services more advanced than those offered at St. Anthony Community Hospital, which, along with Good Samaritan, is part of Bon Secours Charity Health System and the Westchester Medical Center Health Network. Now that he has completed most of his treatment in Suffern, he can receive additional therapy in Warwick.

“I was very impressed throughout my entire experience at Good Sam,” James said. “I have only great things to say about my doctors, the nurses, the receptionist, the maintenance workers and everyone else.”

Just like him, James encourages others to pick up our Grateful Giving brochure. He said, “If you make a donation to show your appreciation for Good Sam’s staff, it will make a difference for our hospital. And it will let your healthcare team know that they’ve made a difference for you!”
