Accepting Patients:

"We work with a diverse group of patients from all over the Northwest. My position here is to help patients with sarcoma by coordinating their care, but I also gain a great deal from these patients and their families. They inspire me and help me keep everything in perspective. I feel privileged to be able to help them at this time in their lives."
