In April 2019, I was diagnosed with Peritoneal Cancer. This was overwhelming for me, until I had my first meeting with Dr. Steven Vasilev. He was extremely calm, clear, kind, and took as much time as I needed to understand the best plan for me. He gave me hope when I didn’t have any. I knew when I left our meeting that I could trust him, and he would give his very best to fight this cancer. I could not have been more thankful.
The following week, I started 9 chemo treatments; one per week. Fortunately, my body responded very well. I was feeling fantastic! I am a dancer, and after 5 chemo treatments, I performed in a showcase for the studio where I train. I am posting this video to offer encouragement to anyone in cancer treatment. It is possible to continue having fun while in treatment!
Currently, I am recovering from my robotic surgery. From this experience, I have nothing but positive words and praise. Dr. Vasilev did brilliant work for me and my recovery is going smoothly. Georgette, Dr. Vasilev’s PA, was wonderful as well. Their personal and kind demeanor assured me that I was in great hands.
I am incredibly thankful and blessed that I had Dr. Vasilev and his team caring for me. Thank you for saving my life.
