Cheers: To Dr. John Adams, nurse Eva and all the nurses in the Arlington Cancer Center — Sonja, Eileen, Donna, Brenda, Ashley and Mary Kay — for their compassion and gentle ways. I was so scared when I started my chemo treatments. These wonderful caregivers eased my fears. Thank you for your dedication to healing cancer.
