“Swimming Upstream: My Struggle and Triumph Over Cancer and Medical Establishment”
- October 4, 2017

As many of you know, facing any adversity is challenging.  Being a healthcare professional makes this journey more difficult.  Dr. Iqbal shares his story which was featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette in August.  He has attended our Face2Face Healing Support Group meetings via Vidyo Conferencing from his home in New Jersey.  It has been a pleasure to get to know him and he has many great insights to help others.  I have had the honor of reading his book.   Since we were treated by Dr. Barry Schaitkin and have similiar diagnoses, we have a special bond.  Join me in sending prayers for his continued healing and survivorship.
