I want to acknowledge and give a great big shout out to Dr. Venu Pillarisetty, my surgical oncologist. He exuded so much confidence in his own capabilities, I knew from day one I was in good hands. Working with him has been an incredible journey. He has always been so upfront about the pros and cons of pre/post surgery. He has an amazing outlook towards life; to not take things for granted and always maintain a positive attitude– definitely something I’ll always keep with me.
