I am a licensed vocational nurse and caregiver who is very familiar with the Mickelson therapy pool — an essential health care facility.

I was a participant and an observer at the Mickelson therapy pool. I also was happy to see the joy and laughter of the children brought there.

I know this as I have seen my own disabled nephew

Respond to a warm water therapy pool in Florida.

So many lives are diminished by the shutting down of these options for people who need them.


I greatly appreciate that Xenia Sicat brought a spotlight to yet another groups of county residents who were well-served by the Mickelson pool, and who are being subjected to reversals in their health and well-being by Sutter's current decision to remove a crucial asset from our county. Sadly, the past few years have shown us that shame doesn't seem to lead to positive change. But keeping pressure on our elected officials, coupled with highlighting this corporation's poor behavior just may!
