Anybody who goes to Sloan Kettering to treat their mesothelioma has made a wise choice. I am an attorney who helps people with mesothelioma and have such great respect for this institution

Hello. My name is Sergey Martsenyuk. I am a future doctor from Ukraine. I very much want to continue to learn and work for you ... but do not have large financial opportunities. If you can tell me how to act.
Ukrainian Cure finished university. Now I am on a residency in Kiev. I would be grateful for your reply.

I met Dr. Downey after I was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer. After two rounds of chemo therapy and radiation treatments, my tumor shrunk enough where Dr. Downey felt comfortable to perform a left phneumonectomy in 1997.

Eighteen years and two grandchildren later I am still around, thanks to Dr. Downey, Dr. Orsini and Dr. Devereau and their staff.
Funny, I recall Dr. downey looking alot younger.

You can't find a better surgeon, in my opinion.

Dear Edward, thank you for taking the time to write those kind words. We're glad to know you're doing well!

Thank you, Dr. Downey and MSKCC for all you have done for me. Sucks having lung cancer especially when you don't smoke but such is life. I am very fortunate to have been treated by the best doctor at the best hospital in the world. My prayers and support to all of you.
