The Passion in Compassion
Congratualtions go out to my oncologist who was named to the reported in the local newspaper, only 4% of doctors are in this database. The determination is made by asking doctors, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?"

At my first consultation, I asked her why this was her passion. She explained to me that she was driven in this field because there is so much hope. On this same theme, the newspaper quotes her as saying, "My father always said to find your passion and make that your work." I think it is clear that she did just that.

Just reading her words reminds me of that first appointment with her when I left feeling empowered. Her words in this article gave me a feeling of deja vu. Unlike some doctors, I believe she knows how to engage her patients and encourage them to actively be part of the process.

"When the patient has choices, they are part of the solution and can engage in the fight. Cancer is not fair and it's not just. It's a terrible thing. We can't cure everybody but what we can do is give excellent medical care today and make tomorrow better by bringing new treatments. "

Congratulations on a well deserved honor.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
