Date: July 3, 2010

Dr. Juan Powell,
Eastwood Clinic
Texas, USA

Dear Dr. Powell,

First of all, I apologize for writing this letter without your prior consent. My mother has been diagnosed with throat cancer. I have read about your research on throat cancer and surgical expertise. I write this letter with the hope that you are the person who can help me.

My mother, Julianne, was diagnosed with stage IIA throat cancer in May 2005. At that time, she underwent an operation to remove the tumor at ABC hospital in XYZ town. The doctor at that time said that the operation was successful. My mother was fine for 2 years. Recently, my mother again complained of pain in her throat. When we examined it, the doctors confirmed that the throat cancer is in its advanced stage.

I read your recent work with a clinical trial and I come to know about your expertise in the field of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

I can understand that many such requests come to your desk daily but your guidance into this matter will be highly appreciated by my family

Thank you, in advance, for your help. I look forward to meet you personally and discuss the condition in detail.

Joe Frasier
