“After a year of dealing with cancer, coming back and overcoming other stresses, I’m back at it

“Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It’s not always easy.”

But My doctor– Dr. Sajjan helped me to come out of this easily.

She said: “days I’m depressed or just plain lazy. But she pushed through  by the help of Dr. Sajjan who has been relentless in getting me to hike and learning new ways to cook that feed, my soul, in a healthy way.”

The day when I was diagnosed with cancer was a depressing stressful darkest day of my life. 

And I was struggling over this news…as I met Dr. Sajjan he said you should dig deep for the inner strength you need to face it all. 

We pray u will do it all with dignity and grace.” And yes I did it Dr. Sajjan has been a great support as an eminent medical oncologist and guide for my treatment regimen and an awesome counselor at the same time.
