  7. Hey Dr. Farber…Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve been enjoying the photos of your family and have been watching the progress of your center. I am so proud of you and I feel profoundly fortunate to have been your patient. Been being the operative word . A friend in Oregon’s 7 year old grandson with Stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma is flying into Memorial Sloan on 12/27 from Oregon for radiation. I haven’t said anything to them, but is there any way you could just take a look? I don’t know how this stuff works…
    I’m truly sorry to bother you, but this kid is heavy on my heart:
    Thank you for being you…you’re wonderful. (smoooch)
