Be Brave & Shave

Meet Dr. Horn. This wonderful woman was Adam's admit oncologist when he was first diagnosed. She was a remarkable support to us on our journey through treatment. I honor her here with this post for the remarkable work she is doing with our children with cancer. This is a news segment which features Dr. Horn having her head shaved for the "Be Brave and Shave" campaign. We thank you, Dr. Horn, for your tireless efforts in finding a cure for cancer and for giving families like us a chance to hope.

Wow, she does sound very sincere and dedicated to her work! I'm glad that she was there to help Adam! I love how she said the children teach her. That sounds like an open-minded, humble person, to me.

It means a lot to see a doctor care about the children beyond duty. Her approach is a welcome indication of positive change in attitude toward patients' emotional needs over the past fifty years. I'm thankful Adam has been treated so well and that his parents' input has been respected.

How wonderful it is that people are talking about and not hiding cancer anymore. In the "olden days" people would hide or stay out of public when they had cancer and especially no hair. It is truly a "family disease" and we are all here to support you in any way we can. You are always in our thoughts and prayers and love the progress and website so we can keep up. Love, A. Gail
