John Broko (pictured at the VMCE) wrote, “I am an Erie-born U.S.M.C. veteran, age 72, living on social security in a senior citizen apartment. I have cardiac vascular problems from quadruple bypass surgery years ago. I am a diabetic and have recently had surgery for malignant melanoma, and more surgeries and treatment are forthcoming. The VA hospital has been outstanding and their staff is great.” John was able to avail himself of VMC Erie services.
