The letter to those, who saved my life
To Medipol Medical Staff
There are few who cross our path of life that remain forever in our hearts, and for me this is the entire team at Medipol Hospital.
I'd like to thank you with all my heart my doctors Dr. Fatma Deniz Sargin and Dr. Huseyin Saffet Bekoz for literally giving me a second chance in life! They were never too busy to see or speak to me, always made me feel protected and believed in my speedy healing.I’m extremely lucky to be taken care of by you. My whole family is!
Especially huge thanks to Dr.Huseyin Saffet Bekoz for his positive attitude which was unbeat and comforting to all. There’s no way I can ever thank you for being such an awesome doctor!You’ve stuck by us (me and my twin brother Eugene) through the tough times and the good ones. You’ve always been honest, patient & encouraging.
Thank you doesn’t come close to describing my gratitude for all of the nurses for what they have done for me. Not only you are an outstanding passionate professionals, but you are a wonderful people who encouraged and supported me! Your patience, skilled hands, gentle touch and ability to see beyond is rare. I appreciate all the conditions and environment I was lucky to be part of – my hospital room, amazing delicious food, constant care – there is no place I'd rather get my surgery done!
Huge thank you goes to Irada Gulcan and our translator Iryna, our bilingual support team who made me feel comfortable and confident! Irada thank you for always being here for us and helping us to go through this challenge! You’ve been worrying about and supporting me and my brother even before we arrived to Medipol! I’m so grateful for having such a caring person by side while on treatment!
Moreover, I’d like to thank on behalf of my family to Bookimed coordinator Alexey Berkovets. Without this man we wouldn’t be able done what we’ve done. He was with us from the very beginning, he was the one who recommended us Medipol clinic, who reassured us that this is the best team in cancer treatment in Turkey, who was dealing with lots of paperwork on a daily basis trying to get funds from Ukrainian government for us to pay for the surgery, and negotiating lots of issues that kept coming up every day! He was with us every single minute ready to jump in and help! I remember how everything has started with unspeakable gratitude in my heart and tears on my eyes… Thank you Alexey for who you are and for the deepest kindness of your heart!
I want to thank you ALL for your contribution in making my future bright!
From a forever grateful patient,
