Young Cancer Survivor's Father Helps Others
When David Desonier's son, Richie, was at one of his lowest points during treatment for sarcoma, a young MD Anderson nurse quietly confided to the family that she had survived a similar cancer."My son's eyes lit up to meet a healthy adult who had survived sarcoma and was doing well," says Desonier, a dentist in Houma, La.
Her gracious admission made a lasting impression on Desonier and influenced him to volunteer for MD Anderson's Pediatric Caregiver Telephone Support Network.
