    Dr. Woods saved my life! I was diagnosed at four years of age with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He and his amazing team at Children's Mercy Hospital defied all the odds and here I am at 35 years old, married, and a father of two children. None of it would have been possible without them. He is fantastic dealing with children and I know my mother always felt very comfortable talking with him. Any child with cancer in the KC area should go to him!
