Alison Yager

Thank you!

From Beth Silverberg Marx

Dr. Alison Yager, an incredible human being and physician

You inspire me because

You are one of the kindest, smartest, funniest, and most amazing human beings that I know. You have always had such a gift for making others feel special and like they matter, which is especially important now as you are helping to treat sick children and their very worried parents and caregivers. Anyone who has you as a physician and friend is incredibly lucky.

Something I have learned from you is

Always how to laugh, even when things get tough. And in addition to being a remarkable physician, how to be a mama of three, an incredible wife, supportive sister, and fabulous friend. As my mother would say, you have "ayla maylos" (ask your parents) :)

I am proud of you for

Not to be a shmendrick and better to be a nice woman, even if not a well woman

Thank you for

Who you are and how you interact with others in this crazy universe—with so much kindness, respect, wisdom and love for others. And that you always know how to make everyone feel loved and happier after having spent time with you (no pressure)

You can also honor someone important in your life by selecting a "We Celebrate Tribute" in the JWA store.
