Office Fall Dinner & Pumpkin Carving

Last night we had our office staff gather together for dinner and pumpkin carving with our kids. It is always nice to spend time with each other in a non-work setting. We have such wonderful people that work in our office. We enjoyed a carry-in dinner and then went straight to the pumpkin carving.

Everyone enjoyed slurping up the noodles. While the adults picked up dinner the kids had a great time playing with legos.
Then the pumpkin carving commenced...
Here are the final results of our pumpkin masterpieces.

Some of our little ones got a little help from mom and dad. But they all loved their final pumpkins and the parents had the sore arms to prove a job well done.
In case you wondered what a few of them looked like in the dark.

Here is the pumpkin we carved for the office. 
And here it is in its place of honor.
After we worked hard on our pumpkins we ended the night with a creature themed cake decorated by one of the kids.
Hope you enjoyed our recap of our wonderfully fun night of food, family and pumpkins!

Spotlight Sasha

Today we are going to spotlight our most senior staff member Sasha Salas. When asked an interesting fact about her she gave the these gems. 

"My Last name can be spelled the same way front and back SalaS"
" When my mom was pregnant with me she wanted to name me after her favorite Mexican singer of the time regardless of whether I was a boy or girl. His name was Ricardo but lucky for me a few weeks before I was born she heard a song she liked and that lead singers name was Sasha and that is how I got my name"
Do you have an interesting story of how you got your name? We would love to hear it.

Sports Fans

Day 12 of Get To Know GBC has us talking sports.

Since it is the weekend I thought we would talk about our favorite sport.
An overwhelming majority of the staff and doctors rank football as their favorite sport. This time of year there is plenty of football everywhere to enjoy.
Are you a big sports fan, if so what is your favorite sport?

The Most Important Meal

I am sure that most of you have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

In case you ever wondered what our favorite breakfast is - BiBi and Sahsa R. will take a good breakfast taco any day. BiBi likes her taco with picante sauce and Sasha R. sometimes skips the taco for a little oatmeal. Dr. Max likes eggs for breakfast and so does Dr. Nicole but she prefers hers with some french toast. Sasha S. likes a little chorizo con huevos (sausage and eggs) with black beans.

What do you like for breakfast?

A Survivor's Story

Today we have a very special guest post from a member of Dr. Max's family. Here is his mother-in-law's story about surviving breast cancer and how she has turned her experience into helping others.

My Story
Very few people will go through life without being faced with life altering situations.  Until one is faced with cancer as a caregiver or as having the disease themselves they really can't even begin to imagine how life changing it is.   Cancer has taken me to a different level of appreciation for life. I lost my Dad to cancer in 1998.  I watched him suffer an unbearable sickness.  There was absolutely nothing I could do and it was very frustrating. So, you can imagine my fear in 2004 when I myself heard those words 
"you have cancer".  
I was filled with anger and devastation.  I had only seen through the eyes of being the person watching, caring for and loving the cancer patient.  Now, I was the patient.  I can tell you that cancer treatment is bad enough just from watching what it does to a loved one, but I can also tell you first hand from being the person undergoing that treatment, it is barbaric.  Your lows couldn't get any lower.  You think you couldn't get any sicker, but you can.  Just when you are feeling human again, its time for another treatment.  
I have made a commitment to myself to make the life I live a better one through appreciating every day that God has given me and using that day to make a difference in the lives around me.  One of those commitments I have made is to help raise money with my friend Ann for cancer research. For the last 5 years, we have co-coordinated the BUFFALO STAMPEDE AGAINST CANCER raising money for finding a cure. Thanks to people like you who take the time to support breast cancer research to help find a cure, together, we CAN make a difference.  
Early detection can save lives. 
  Get your mammograms, don't put off to tomorrow what could save your life today.  
Today is the best day of my life ever……..

Barbara Davis, 9 year Breast Cancer Survivor.
