My Passion for Healthcare

I unexpectedly fell in love with pediatrics and oncology in particular because cancer doesn’t care. Cancer doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, black, white, Hispanic or otherwise. It doesn’t care if you are academically brilliant or less gifted or if you have great family support or none. And kids, in my opinion, are its ultimate victim. My draw to pediatric oncology lies in the desire to help these kids and their families through the roughest part of their young lives. We have so much to offer.
