A township woman was recently reunited with the doctor who saved the lives of her and her unborn son a year ago.

The reunion occurred on Jan. 17 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Somerville. Casey Cattell, 37, brought her 15-month-old son, Nathan to meet Dr. Marc Milano, chairman of the hospital’s emergency medicine department.

It was Dr. Milano, who diagnosed a bilateral pulmonary emboli in Cattell in June 2015, who received her when she was rushed to the hospital on Oct. 11, 2016 while still pregnant with Nathan. Cattell refers to that day as her “survival anniversary.”

The reuinion was held in to commemorate National Blood Donor Month.
