It’s Turkey Time! WILL YOU JOIN US FOR TURKEY DAY, 2017?
Everyone has their favorite holiday — the one they love to go all-out on. For many people, that holiday is Christmas or Halloween, or maybe even Valentine’s Day. I spend the year looking forward to Thanksgiving. There’s nothing I love more than getting together with my family. Every year, we drive down to Houston to spend Thanksgiving with my parents and siblings for a full day of food and family. The fact that my birthday is on November 27 definitely adds to my enjoyment of the season. Thanksgiving always falls around — and some years on — my birthday, and that seems to make the holiday all the more special. I love to go all-in for Thanksgiving, and that includes sharing the spirit of giving and gratitude with my team and patients at the office. For the last seven years, our annual Turkey Day has been a much- anticipated tradition. On this day in November, every patient who comes in for treatment walks out with a free turkey. My patients put so much trust in me. They allow me to help them through a difficult time in their lives as they struggle to overcome severe pain. When my favorite holiday comes around, I want to thank each and every one of them for their trust in the form of a turkey dinner. Last year, we gave away an incredible 120 turkeys. This year, I think we’re going to blow that number out of the water. I’ve had patients talking about this event since September, and many people have volunteered to help us out on that day. I definitely appreciate the extra hands because boy, does it get crazy! Turkey Day starts bright and early as I head to the grocery store with two or three SUVs full of coolers, all waiting to be loaded up with frozen turkeys. There’s a great energy in the office, and everyone is excited to open the doors and get started. It’s a busy day, but we all have the best time. It’s cool to know that, in a way, we get to be a part of our patients’ Thanksgivings through their turkey. I imagine some of their families will be surprised to hear they got the turkey from their doctor!
“I love to go all-in for Thanksgiving, and that includes sharing the spirit of giving and gratitude with my team and patients at the office.”
Some patients have said to me, “I don’t need a turkey, but can I bring mine to a friend who needs it?” Of course! We get what we give in life, and I am happy to help make sure Thanksgiving dinner makes it to as many tables as possible. Once Turkey Day is over at the office, we donate all the leftover birds to a soup kitchen or some other charitable organization to help feed the hungry.
There’s a lot to love about a holiday that’s all about family, fun, and food. On Thanksgiving, we stop and appreciate all we have in this life, and all the people who make each day wonderful. I look forward to celebrating my favorite holiday, and I’ll see everyone on Turkey Day!
