Kimberly would like to say a special thank you to all the staff at Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY (HOA) in Brittenfield, from the nurses to the doctors. They were all loving and caring individuals, especially Dr. Cherny, and his secretary, Ruth. She also would like to mention Linda Lyon at Rome Hospital, who started her Cancer journey on the right path, and always took time to see her when ever needed. Kimberly’s Cancer journey was a long and hard fight.
