Hope Found Here—A Testimonial  

My relationship with The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center began on February 3, 2008. It was Super Bowl Sunday and the Giants were to play the Patriots. I suffered a seizure before the kickoff. I was transported to a nearby hospital and diagnosed with a brain tumor. I was told they could do nothing for me. I was fortunate to be transferred to Duke where I was given hope! Within days I was examined and scheduled for surgery with Allan Friedman, MD, and his excellent team. A malignant tumor was removed on February 15—Dr. Friedman’s birthday. I handed him a birthday card as we entered surgery. The surgery was a success, and after radiation, chemo and many visits to Duke, I am blessed to say my MRI scans continue to be clear. I cannot thank the doctors and staff enough for what they have done for me and my family.
