May is here and Happy Mother’s Day!!!
Ever since I moved from Texas to Washington state, Mother’s Day was just a phone call. It’s been 20 years since I had the pleasure of spending Mother’s Day with my mom in person. Well, this year I will get to actually hug and kiss my mom, as I moved her here to be close to me. It’s good to have family close and I am already thinking of all the fun stuff we will get to do over the summer and make more memories.
In honor of Mother’s Day, we will be giving away a free HydraFacial or chemical peel to all our moms in our CCPHP family. In addition, a special care package is set aside for that special mom who deserves it the most. So please nominate your mom and tell us why she is so special. It would be fun to read all the good memories you have of your mom.
I will tell you why my mom is so special to me. She gave up her well known fashion designer career in Korea, to immigrate to the USA so that I could get the education to become a doctor. The black and white picture you see is from Korea when she was young and very fashionable.
She gave up her thriving career for me and became a donut baker for the last 20 years of her career while raising me, before she retired. I owe my career to her giving up on hers. She is special to me. Did I bring some tears to your eyes? As I write this, I am tearing.
Have a great month and send in your nominations!
Dr. Erik Suh
