"It is a privilege to work with children as part of a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and researchers who are so dedicated to providing the best care for our patients today while at the same time working to find a cure for every child in the future. My favorite days are those when I receive notes and pictures from my former patients who now are living long, healthy lives free of cancer."
