“I chose this career to take care of patients with serious illnesses and provide all the resources available to help with this difficult journey. The most enjoyable aspect is the relationship that I develop with you and your family, and it’s an honor and a privilege to help you through this challenging part of your life. I strive to give you hope, no matter what the situation, encouragement where my worries are not conveyed, peace in all the decisions you make for yourself, reassurance for your family, and courage to do the difficult but necessary things for your health and well-being.”
