Dr. Schantz, how do I begin? First I guess with wishing you and your beautiful family all the blessings at Christmas. This will be the first Christmas in my adult life that I will not shy away from the cameras, or only want my picture taken from the waist up. I simply detested myself at times before, I had a love-hate relationship within myself. Not a fun place to be. With the help of God, Dr. Schantz - you have changed my life in the most remarkable way! In the hurried season, and your busy day to day schedule, I'm sure it's easy for you to forget just how much of a difference you make. BUT I will NEVER forget! When I walk by mirrors now I literally at times take a second glance. It almost doesn't seem real. My depression has nearly ceased! I have a better self-worth, self-esteem, and over all quality of life. So this Christmas while gathered with your wonderful family, know I will be having my BEST Christmas EVER! In honor of you I will say special prayers asking God himself to bless you and your wonderful work!
