ACTON – “He was steadfast. He took care of us, all of these years," said Suzanne Chase of Acton about her husband, Doug, a Vietnam veteran who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011, CBS Boston reports.



In 2012, she tried to move his medical care to the Veterans Affairs hospital in Bedford.

They waited about four months and never heard anything. Then Douglas Chase died in August 2012. But two weeks ago, he got a letter, from the VA in Bedford, saying he could now call to make an appointment to see a primary care doctor.
