To my donor,
Thank you. Thank you for your act of utmost self-sacrifice in the donation of your very self. As my first patient and one of my greatest teachers you have made a lasting impact on my development as a clinician. You have not only blessed my life but the lives of all my future patients. The experience of seeing the amazingly complex human body in its detail and entirety was invaluable and unmatchable by any diagram found in a textbook or model made from plastic. This privilege improved the depth of my understanding of anatomy and therefore will directly benefit the patients I will soon encounter. I hope to always honor your sacrifice by being a compassionate and knowledgeable PA, always striving to care for my patients to the best of my ability.
With deep gratitude,
A future PA
“I am so thankful for this Impact Beyond Life program because not only did it give me the chance to develop a connection with my first patient, but it gave me the opportunity to develop a stronger connection to my family. These individuals have helped me understand the meaning of life and that life can go beyond the time that you are living.”
