      Dr. Schwartzberg is my guardian angel, because she is guiding me through this labyrinth since my breast cancer diagnosis on January 6, 2016. Although I am over the hump with the mastectomy, and the first chemo treatment (with mediport), I know that Dr. S. and Desiree will continue to be my angels of deliverance.
