American Medical Response/Medic West to the Rescue!

We're so thrilled that we heard from Michael Gorman (on behalf of his wonderful employees!) the General Manager of American Medical Response, in our request for transporting Tanya both safely and comfortably to and from her upcoming brain surgery!

Here's what Michael had to say:

"Hello Tanya! I hope this email finds you well.  I am the general manager for American Medical Response and Medic West Ambulance here in Southern Nevada.  We are the men and women who respond to the nearly six hundred 911 calls per day in Clark County (including Las Vegas and North Las Vegas). My employees saw your story today on Channel 13 news and the calls came pouring into my office asking if there was a way for us to lend our assistance to you.  I am happy to say that I back their sentiment 100% and would like to know if we can set up a time to talk about the resources we have that can get you to your doctor’s appointment in California.  You will see my cell phone listed below – that is the fastest and most direct way to get a hold of me (or email). I look forward to speaking with you soon! My Best, Michael J Gorman"

"We at AMR and MedicWest were moved when we learned about Tanya’s story.  We immediately decided that we could provide Tanya with ambulance transportation to California where she will receive the medical care she needs.  We are honored to help her with this step during such a difficult journey, and wish her and her family our best.”
~Tony Greenway, EMT-P and Manager of Medic West Admin 

Michael, Tony and all the fine men and women at American Medical Response and Medic West...WE THANK YOU!

Additional thanks of appreciation go out to all the wonderful emails we got with offers of help, both transportation-wise and monetary!!!

In addition, News13 in Las Vegas is coming over to the house tonight to do a follow-up story on this entire wonderful chapter of the journey.  CLICK HERE to see the video
