“My daughter Brenna was diagnosed with a brain tumor in October of 2009. She was airlifted to Nicklaus Children's Hospital immediately following her diagnosis. I was terrified. Dr. David Sandberg, her neurosurgeon, was calm and clear about the treatment that was necessary for her recovery. She had surgery a few days later and is now back home healthy and thriving. I am so grateful for Nicklaus Children's Hospital and Dr. Sandberg!”
