Encinitas Advocate shares grateful patient's story

Amanda Auger recently shared with the Encinitas Advocate the story behind the Scripps logo tattoo she inked on her left shoulder several years ago.

In 2013, Auger underwent emergency brain surgery at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest to remove an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a condition that happens in less than 1 percent of the general population.

Cured after the surgeries, Auger commemorated her experience with a tattoo of the Scripps logo.
