“‪Everyone has a gift. Whether you are a singe “‪Everyone has a gift. Whether you are a singer, a chef, a musician, an artist, an engineer, a philosopher, a writer...we can ALL use what we have, right where we are, to leave this world better than we found it. Even in the midst of pandemonium. Let’s set a new paradigm. History will record, and generations from now they will know that we were here, and they will see how we lived. How we searched for the best thoughts we could find. How we came out on the other side. As a breast surgical oncologist, I among those who are #StillHereForYou because‬ ‪#CancerDoesntQuarantine.”
