I am a "Survivor:!!! I give a lot of credit to Dr. Brierre who did not give up on this "Senior", but was so patient and kind and gave me what was needed to achieve this "Survivor" status. Dr. Brierre was so on top of my reactions to Chemo, allowed me to keep taking it when I could and knew when we had to stop, to prevent neuropathy. His PA, Erik, and all the staff, are so kind and patient. They do make a bad experience a happy one when you are there receiving treatments.
