Dr. Dagum saved my life in 2001. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer and had a 1 in 5 chance of making it 5 years. Dr. Dagum was brilliant! He was an integral part of my cancer team which performed a radical mastectomy on me as well as chemo and daily radiation treatments, among the reconstruction and many skin graphs. Dr. Dagum was always a true professional and a great leader in his field. 15 years later I am still boasting about him to anyone who will listen! Thank you Dr. Dagum!
