“The families I work with everyday inspire me. I’m staggered by the things that parents will do for their kids. The lengths they’ll go to, to ensure their child gets the best chance in life and achieves their personal potential. I’m driven by wanting all of my patients to be cured. We’ve made some pretty big strides but we need to ensure it continues.”
