Apr 17, 2014  Breast Cancer Survivor Goes Waterskiing!
The following note was written be a former breast cancer patient:

Dr. Jaskowiak & Dr. Song,

I wanted to send you both this photo of me water-skiing in Hawaii recently.

I wasn’t sure if I’d be strong & healthy enough to waterski again after my mastectomy, particularly since the sport pulls quite a bit on the upper arms and chest, and requires core and abdominal strength. I’m happy to report that I was able to ski again last summer, 10 months after my initial surgery. Earlier this month, on our Hawaiian vacation, I enjoyed my waterskiing even more, due to a recent loss of 20 pounds!

And surprisingly, I think I look better in my bathing suit now than before my mastectomy. What a pleasant surprise and added bonus that has been.

Thanks to you both for your excellent care and treatment. I was lucky to be your patient, and I’m so happy to have my life back again!!


Apr 16, 2014  Welcome Baby Daniel!
The Department of Surgery would like to give a warm welcome to baby Daniel, whose parents Jose Moyano and Patricia worked in surgical research under Dr. Karl Matlin!
